I like them because they look like another pair of boots I saw on Ann Demeulemeester's runway show one or two seasons ago (actually I suspect Ann Demeulemeester has high boots of this style for almost every season now, and you know how expensive those current-season stuff from Ann Demeulemeester could be, and how difficult to find them in any place outside NYC or LA in this country). Â And two months ago when I was at the Atelier boutique of NYC, I also saw boots of same style from Rick Owens or Carol Christian Poell, or maybe another esoteric French fashion house. Â They looked so nice but so wildly expensive.:-( I have a pair of tight pants from Jean Colonna which match these boots perfectly, so I am really a bit tempted to buy. Â After all, thanks for your advice.
