i wrote some time ago that annually, i have this ritual where i try to find a pair of boots that will be work appropriate and also wearable for the weekend. my issue is that most of the boot shafts are too big for my legs. for the most part, it looks like i'm wearing firefighter boots. it has gotten to the point that of all the things to shop for in the world, i will absolutely avoid boot shopping.
the stuart weitzman 50/50 boot is really cool and its stretchy back is perfect for smaller calves. however, it is an over the knee boot and very inappropriate for the office. i would not wear it enough on the weekends to justify the price tag. when i was in DC, i spotted these stuart weitzman mezzamezza. i saw them again at holt renfrew when they had their GC promotion. they are just like the 50/50 except under the knee. i went down half a size from my US size, and took the 7. they'll be great with skirts, and skinny jeans. have a great weekend!
