I briefly showed these boots in a recent post, but they definitely deserve a little more love! I’m here for a trend that is practical as well as stylish, and even better if it’s a cyclical one that’s already been around for decades. After being enticed by chic combat boot outfits around town, I tried on quite a few options before coming across winners. Some were so heavy or clunky, they didn’t do a petite frame any favors!
These Sam Edelman boots however were just what I was looking for – the shape and platform soles are very elongating (esp. paired with dark jeans or leggings), and the entire boot is much lighter weight than I expected. They’re comfortable to walk in with no breaking in needed, and I love that there’s a side zipper so you don’t have to untie and retie the boots each time. Size wise, I’m between a size 5 and 5.5 in most brands, and a 5 here fit me best with enough room for my winter socks. These can also be found at Zappos or Dillards but I’m a little shocked at how quickly this style has been disappearing even with no sales … smaller sizes are already gone at all other retailers!
