I've only recently really started to get into fashion, whatever that might be. Anyways, I'm looking for staple items for the fall. One of these staple items is a black ankle boot or Chelsea boot (they are the same thing, right?). I think they are quite versatile, since they can be worn with dress pants, but also be worn with jeans. I've searched the forum, but can't quite find much info. My budget is fairly low, less than 150. Any ideas on a good pair of chelsea/ankle boots? What is an affordable brand with good quality? From what I read most shoes are made by other companies. I also learned that Kenneth Cole shoes suck. I always thought they were somewhat decent.
