Timeout from the house for a minute if you don’t mind.
I am not great at shoe selection for some reason, I can’t explain it –I’m just challenged. My shoe wardrobe is severely limited and recently I made the conscious decision to go shoe shopping and seek out the right ankle boot. And generally I have to ease in to trends so its taken me a couple of seasons ok but I’m there now, I’m ready.
Things I knew going in that I needed to consider would include; comfort, flexibility (will they work for a wide range of outfits) and price. Things I learned once I started trying on in the Nordstrom shoe department; height of the boot (I have short legs I’m only 5’2″), whether or not it had buckles and was it a pull-on or had a zipper. Ultimately I think the most important elements for me in this search were the height of the boot and the heel height. I think that my frame and height tend to look better in a shorter ankle boot and I have to be careful not to look as a friend recently said, “like a gnome”.
So here’s the field,
