I wanted to post about black boots today, I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of black boots for a very long time. I thought I would find the answer to my prayers in NYC this weekend, I mean with all those shoe stores one would think that there was at least one pair that would fit my needs. Well…I struck out again. I did find an amazing pair of boots right on Christopher in the West Village but the boots were devoid of a price tag, which was my first problem. My second problem was that when I asked for the price point the sales man said: “what does price matter when you are buying a pair of shoes that are made from real heart and sweat”. Hmmm…in my case unfortunately price does matter and I had to leave the store without those $1150.00 boots, even though they were amazing and I could definitely tell were crafted with real heart and sweat.
Anyways the point being sometimes price does matter but I am not about to sacrifice style, quality or comfort when looking for the perfect black boots, and neither should you! Below are a few of my favorites all under $200.00.
These are all synthetic, which is great in New England when the snow and dirt gets into your boots, it won’t ruin the leather. Also, synthetic boots tend to me a lot less expensive, all of the boots below are under $80.00.
Black boots with a heel-sometimes we all need a little height
These are some great winter boots, not particularly black, but the fur makes up for it.
