    Anybody else have a problem with like that? I don't know why but buying a pair of boots that I truly like is always the biggest pain. Sneakers are easy, shoes are not to bad either. I usually end up seeing a pair of boots on someone that I really dig but I don't know where to get them.




    Heres another example....Im browsing Macy's website and I come across a pair of boots that I really like. http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/...goryID=31779#fn=sp=1&spc=28&ruleId=5&slotId=8

    Problem is the they are selling the damn jeans and not the boots. So I have no idea what they are.

    If you like brown, I personally love the Clarks Desert Boot Beeswax. Not pricey either.

    Id like to keep it under $200
    I looked that up...I like Brown but not a fan of that style Could anyone match a style close to the ones I posted above? This is my general problem. I see boots I like a lot but they are just pictures.

    Looks like a black cap toe blucher. Alternatively, try calling/emailing customer service. They may be able to research the boot and tell you what it is.

    I'm with you on this one. I really like the Clarks Mali Boot in brown. And love the Clarks x Supreme Mali Boot in burgundy, but those are nowhere to be found. I've been trying to find similar styles but no luck so far.

    The best thing to do if you see someone wearing a pair of boots you like is to ask where they got them from. Have you tried Red Wings? There are so many different style's of boot it depends what you are after really.

    The thing is it always a pair of boots either in a picture or video. Just like this example the boots I want are being worn by a guy modeling jeans. I looked at the red wings briefly. There was one pair that Iooked pretty cool. I agree there is so many styles and that's my problem... It like I can't find any for sale that I really like

    Do a search for military style cap toe boots. You'll get a number of hits.

    I've been looking for a nice black boot as well, no budget as long as they look great. I really like black nubuck or something dress/casual. Or if anyone has links that would be fantastic, haven't found anything on shoe mart, shoe buy, etc..
