Why I Never Liked Boots Before
For a girl who stands five feet in high heels, boots can present a problem. I’ve never been the girl to go for boots when shoe-shopping because, well, aren’t they all knee-high (which would translate to thigh-high for me)?
Then a heart-sister got married in November. I had a super-cute purple dress and no shoes that would work with it. So I splurged, went to a store that sold only shoes, and found myself staring at some boots. They were soft gray and, lo and behold, low, short things that looked like they wouldn’t swallow my unsuspecting foot!
When I looked at the price tag and discovered they were on sale, I knew they were going home with me.
Why I Love Boots Now
I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Those were my favorite shoes for a while because they were comfortable, adorable, and fashionable.
Why are they my favorite shoes no more? Because they got bumped to second-favorite-pair status after I found low boots in black (also on sale!). These are also comfortable, adorable, and perfect for trekking across campus this winter. I wear them inside jeans, outside jeans, with leggings, with dresses, with skirts…they are definitely my most versatile footwear.
Not bad for a girl who never liked boots.
My advice to short girls looking for a pair of boots?
Shorter boots that rise to the ankles or hit mid-calf don’t make us look smaller than we already are. They go well with jeans and skirts and did I mention they’re insanely comfortable?
