    Hi guys.

    Going to be in the market soon for a pair of 'dressy' boots. I am not doing an internship again until January which is prime winter time and I will need boots. My dilema is to pair a boots and possibly a pair of Meermin's, or to simply shell out 300 or so on AE Fifth Streets which are more dressy. In Toronto I came across a brand called Base London and they have interesting boots although not quite 'dressy'. Has anyone had any experiences? Is it worth the $195 for these and a pair of Meermins as well, or should I just shell out the extra ++ for AE's or even 2 pairs of Meermin dress shoes?

    Regards,
    Mario

    Avoid Base if you can, they are ok if you are in your late-teens (and want cheap shoes) but you would be better of with AE.

    Perfect thanks. For some reason I thought $195 was a bit high for these. The leather didn't seem all the great, nor does it in the photos. Will stick with AE or possible Meermin.
