Very Happy Thanks for posting that ebay link! i've been having a hard time finding boots myself! I wonder what material they are made out of. I don't want to get one's that will wear down with in 2 year limit.


It's made of vinyl lined with some kind of material.

Again, while leather IS better, those boots lasted me 4 years before significant wear and tear set in. So if you need boots in a hurry, I'd recommend getting some of those to hold you over until you can find some nice leather ones.

Nice find!


I also found these, though I'm not sure if they literally mean that they go up to your knees:

Are they black or brown?

Miana, I'd say those boots are too tall. It says "over the knee", and they look like they would go over the knee!

Ah yeah. On their display video, they definitely go up to the chick's knees. So unless you want to do major cosmetic surgery on them, let's just scratch them off the list. Wink

Ok, so I have been looking for boots for the last several months. My mom got me a few pairs and most of them don't fit or are too tight. I wanted to see if these look ok to use as boots? If not, I think I'll probably get a pair of those black funtasma boots or whatever it's called since I know those will fit.

I saw a woman with boots that would look good, and she said she got them at Banana Republic.
