Boots at the Gotham City

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, it is not the secret that the Manolo likes the Gotham City Online for the boot shopping. But, shopping at the Gotham City it is the sort of shopping that requires the diligence and perseverance.

Gucci Suede Boot     Manolo Likes!  Click!

For the example, this handsome, low-heel suede boot by the Gucci, it is on the sale at the Gotham City, but, sadly, it is only available in the sizes the five and the half, and the six.

And so, because you are not the small footed girl, you must now go back to the board of drawing and look for the next boot, perhaps again the equestriany boot with the low-heels, because they are this season in the style.


Look here is another of the handsome boots!

This one it is from the Ralph Lauren. It is the good-looking equestrian style boot with the twist, which it is good because you do not want the equestrian boot that makes you look like the jockey of the lawn. Even the better it is almost 50% off of the normal price.

But, ayyyy! Curses, again! It is available only in the size six. Your foot it is not the size six!

And so you search the boots again.
Gratia by Cole Haan    Manolo Likes!  Click!
Finally, you find this boot from the Cole Haan. It is the very nice boot, stylish, quasi-motorcyclish, quasi-equestrianish, nearly 50% off of the regular price, and Dios Mio! it is available in all of the sizes from the five to the ten! At the last, your search it is completed!

Manolo says, the Gotham City Online, it is the good place to look for the boots, if you are prepared to really look.

    The Tia Nieve adores the look of the boots of the equestrian, but she is perplexed about what to wear with them.

  2. Annie Says:

    Big huge hurrah, because I am normal-size footed and the last one is the best one! (in my opinion). The motorcycleishness is indeed cool. I would wear these with a long floaty silk dress and a fluffy sweater or shawl. One of those scarves made from rare wool (Monoglian baby goats? Estonian yaks??) by the two Englishmen with the Russian-sounding company name would be good too, but I cannot remember who they are, does anyone know?

    …the jockey of the lawn!
    shame on Mr. Kors.

    The Blackbird, she is just a little bit bohemian, and hoping for the boots of the engineer for christmas…

  4. La BellaDonna Says:

    Is it that the Annie is referring to the Badgley Mischka? If not, La BellaDonna is totally at the loss … especially as the Badgley Mischka are two very fine but American designers, whose work entrances La BellaDonna.

    As La BellaDonna, she seldom wears the trousers or jeans, and therefore would not presume to make the bifurcated recommendation to the Tia Nieve. However, La BellaDonna, she is almost always wearing the boots, and the skirts or dresses with them. The young ladies (the twenty-five or unders), they are maybe wearing the black tights and the miniskirts with the boots; for the rest, La BellaDonna recommends, inter alia: the long straight skirt with a back slit, in corduroy, for an autumnal feeling; in khaki, for a transitional summer-to-autumn or winter-to-spring feeling; in a long A-line white wool, for a dramatic winter flavor; an olive twill A-line, suitable year-round; with a long tiered velvet peasant skirt, for a bohemian feeling; with a black bias chiffon, for an edgy feeling; a long black velvet straight skirt, with back slit (what La BellaDonna is wearing with her boots today); a tailored coatdress, for a funky office look; a grey suit, ditto; denim, in its many, many permutations – perhaps a mermaid skirt, for something a little different …

    The possibilities, they are endless.

  5. Fausta Says:

    Ah, the Cole Haan is within the parameters of the budget of the Fausta!

  6. Tia Nieve Says:

    Alas! None of the lovely boots of the equestrian are available in the size of Tia Nieve!

    La BellaDonna, you are truly a superfantastic woman!

  7. Annie Says:

    La BellaDonna, it is not the Badgley Mishka I was seeking to identify, but thanks for identifying them nonetheless, as they are most gorgeous! And most of all you are right about possibilities and endlessness. This is the definition of good boots, as all good things, in my own humble view.

  8. final fashion Says:

    Hot boots! LOVE this style.
    My personal boots of this type are the Bondgirl boots by Fluevog. I wonder what the Manolo thinks of those?

    For me the tough, round toe and sturdy looking sole are critical. I feel fearless in the city when I wear these.

  9. final fashion Says:

    sorry wrong link in the last post!

  10. LaurieM Says:

    Sad for me, I have a 10 1/2 size foot and I am a well muscled girl with a large calf. I love the tall boots, but they never fit my legs even if they come in my shoe size. The best I can manage is a boot-styled shoe that stops at the ankle or just above. I wish someone would make boots with a stretch leg.

  11. Susan Says:

    11 1/2.

    I would love to have a boot fetish. Truly. But if Manolo spent time looking for these in my size he would have found a 100 honest men first.

  12. Janjan Says:

    *another sigh*

    The Janjan, like the the Susan she has very large feet. (11 1/2 or 12, depending on the cut and style). Also well-muscled calves.

    Quite often, the Janjan she resigns herself to the same tired clogs and boots from the Eddie Bauer or the Clarks. When will top name designers figure out that large feet don’t have to be unattractive feet? I suppose it’s like asking when designers will start designing for women larger than a size 4.

  13. lei Says:

    Im just fat and have large calves i HATE IT! besides never finding clothes in my size boot finding is horrible. i really wish people would catch on and make diff. calve sizes like urs a size 10 1/3 shoe with an L calve or XL or S or something!
