Boots for the Strike

Manolo says, if like the Manolo, because of the circumstances beyond your control, you are having to walk everywhere today, then you will need the boot that is not only both comfortable and warm, but also something that expresses your toughness in the face of the urban adversity.

Here is the boot from the Paul Green that captures the grittiness of the urban life, without actually being gritty.

And finally, but not the least, here is the boot from the Taryn Rose, one that is not gritty or tough at all, but in the stead it is more winter wonderlandy. It is also on the sale, 50% off of the usual price.

    Commiserations to all Noo Yorkers. But pity we poor Londoners on July 7, who got stranded in the West End after the terrorist attacks closed the toob and the buses and we had to walk from Oxford Circus to Highgate in high-heeled sandals and flipflops.

    The fur trim on the boot of the Taryn Rose, it resembles the hairstyle sported by the creations of the Doctor Seuss.

    Those, they are some seriously beautiful boots. I particularly like the first ones – which do not exist in my size. Oh what a world, what a world.

    Beautiful boots!
    But it’s cold enough that the Fausta, she’d have to wear the boots of the Blondo with the lining of the shearling.

    hooray for the downtown boot! It lets me take on the urban obstacle course with versatility and toughness. Makes me feel like a superhero. Thank you Manolo for recognizing the flat boot!

    I hope the Manolo has not slipped on the ice on the treacherous streets of New York.

    Ah, the Fluevogs. How I love their boots. Sadly, most of their knee-high boots do not fit the fat calf! And so comfortable, too! I will dance all night in them!

    I am, however, currently having heart palpitations over their new styles….

    I’ve never owned a pair of Fluevogs, even though I’ve pined over them for more than 10 years now. They aren’t for everyone, but I love the quirkness of them. I noticed a really wicked pair on Manolo the Shoeblogger&…
