Every Fall and Winter, I live in ankle boots, but actually find them a bit of a nightmare to buy. I have a ridiculously high instep which typically means I can't my foot into (or out of!) most boots. Last year I pretty much gave up on finding any new, and lived in the ones from Topshop I bought the year before (seen here and here). Needless to say, the amount of walking I do up and down this city, they've both been to the shoe guy several times, but now they're pretty much unsalvageable. However, funnily enough, when I was back in the UK for vacation this summer, I found 2 pairs that I absolutely Love (in M&S of all places), and that fit perfectly.
The pumps were a very lucky find at one of my favorite thrift stores, completely unworn-and at less than 50% of the price they go for in store! I'd say that's a pretty good deal, and I've been wearing them a lot already. I definitely recommend keeping your eyes open for shoes in thrift stores, I'm not keen on buying used shoes so I tend to skip over them, but you'll never know what you might stumble upon. I would never have been able to get them at full price!
All in all, I think I'm about good to go! What shoes are you loving for this season? Does anyone else have trouble finding boots that fit well?
