Boots So Nice, I Bought Them Twice

True story: I hunted high and low for brown boots this year and they were right under my nose the whole time. I rarely look in store for shoes because I find shoe salespeople to be pushy and never that helpful to what I actually need. (I know it’s their job but I have trouble saying no in general and before I know it the sales person and I have connected and we are showing each other photos of our kids and following each other on Instagram. Of course, it’s always nice to make friends but I always end up with a pair or two of heels I truly didn’t want but I didn’t know how to say no to my new friend. In other words, I’m a sales person’s dream.) However I enlisted a sales guy to find me a very specific cognac boot one day and after an hour of trying on booties, I walked away empty-handed. In fact, the sales guy said ‘I just don’t think they make what you want.” But I just didn’t accept that answer; there HAS to be a cognac boot out there, I thought. Lo, and behold I found the ones I’ve been looking for and for under $100. I just needed to take matters into my own hands and look online.

Turns out I loved them so much that I decided I definitely needed them in black. And I was right again. Black booties are a staple for winter and brown booties get me through autumn. A boot so nice I bought it twice: a love story.

Lucky for you they’ve been restocked! So you can find the booties I love here!

Editor's Notes:

I sized up one half size — so I typically wear a 10 and I sized up to a 10.5 to make room for socks!

    I suffer from the same “sales person friendly” disease. I know how hard can be say no in some situations! Glad you found the right boots πŸ™‚

    I’ve been eyeing the cognac ones since I first saw them in your insta feed. Three pairs of brown booties is not too many, right? Asking for a friend. πŸ˜‰

    I do the same thing – why look for something new if you already have the style you love?

    These are great!! I’ve been searching for a bootie with a little dip in the front — it’s more flattering on my short legs than cutting my ankles off with a straight line — and I can’t believe these are leather at such a great price point. Thanks, Kendi!! (*puts the booties in the shopping cart*)

      YES! Thank you — the dip in the front is SO flattering! Bootie makers everywhere need to understand this πŸ˜‰

    You are not alone – if a salesperson is nice to me/tries to be helpful, I want to buy from them. Fortunately for my bank account, this rarely happens. SA’s here are often – not rude, just not good.

    That being said, when you find a good thing, you should buy it in every colour that works with your wardrobe, then buy at least 1 backup in every colour. Because you may never find it again………

    I just did the same, only with the Rachel Comey Mars boot (*gulp*). I found the first pair in whiskey pre-worn on Tradesy and immediately fell in love. Yesterday I bought the last pair of all black ones on Revolve. On sale, but still. These ones are a great deal, wish I had seen them first!
