three boots and a speed-cat
The boots from a few weeks ago, plus a few new pairs.
I buy mostly Mudd boots for casual wear because they have that side zipper — even on the lace-up ones. Driving — particluarly a stick shift — is so much easier if I can quickly unzip my boots. You can get Mudd in a lot of places, but I have the best luck (sizing, variety, and great prices) at Kohl’s (link takes you to the Juniors boots section).
The pair on the left is the one I wrote about a few weeks ago. I wear these boots all the time. I also bought 2 new pairs. On the right, the Etain boot, and the tall one in the middle is Nebula. The new boots are nice — a little less bulky in the toe, an eyelet on the tongue to thread the laces through, a slightly snugger fit (probably because they’re not 2 years old), and even a bit more lightweight.
If you have a Kohl’s by you give them a try before ordering online. The Mudd sizing is pretty consistent though, so if you find your size in one style but not another, you’ll be OK ordering the same size online. The only shoes I’ve ever ordered online is Mudd because they’re sizing is so predictible.
Wondering where the knitting content is? I’ll be back by Monday with some actual knitting progress (I hope). Until then, have a good weekend everyone.
