    These Boots are Made for Walking

    Now that boot season is fully upon us, I thought it was time to post some of my favorites. There is a wide variety of price ranges and I used the most important criteria: Quality, Comfort and Style. All of the choices are from Nordstrom.com.
    (You may recall Nordstrom and Zappos are the only places I will purchase because of the return policy.)

    I own the Pikolinos and they are wonderful!

    The Frye Jackie Button is a new style and I was attracted to them because they have a zipper unlike the popular Melissa Button which is the pull-on style. I REALLY like the look of this boot.

    As you can see, the riding boot style is extremely popular. I know many who own the Enzo and love it. It’s also a great price at $169.95. It has a wider circumference if you have a wide calf. The Steve Madden and Vince Camuto are other great ones to try if you’re looking for a low heeled riding boot.

    The Corso Como is a great choice if you are looking for a little dressier boot with a lower heel, yet don’t want the buckles and details of the other styles.

    The Ecco brand is known for comfort and this one does not disappoint. If you like a bit of a heel, it’s perfect.

    The Aquatalia, which is completely waterproof, comes in at the highest price. The quality of this brand is superior to many out there. I have read dozens of reviews and it is even a favorite of Kate Middleton. I ventured out to our Downtown Portland Nordstrom a few days ago specifically to try these on and was so impressed. I do not have wide calves, but these are definitely a snug fit. If your calves are on the narrow side and your legs seem to be swimming in all the other boots out there, these might be a good one for you.

    There are way too many choices out there to begin to list. Let me know if you have a favorite, and I can feature it in another post.
