Yet More Boots for the D.C.

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, in this morning’s column for the Express of the Washington Post, the Manolo must admit that he felt constrained by the restrictions imposed by his internet friend.

Yes, the Jenny by La Canadienne is the marvelous everyday boot for the months of poor weather, and it certainly fits the requirements of the question, but it is, to the mind of the Manolo, perhaps too plain to be truly and absolutely super fantastic. Therefore, please allow the Manolo to make the few additional recommendations…

Cookie from Aquatalia by Marvin K.

Here is the Cookie from Aquatalia by Marvin K., the suitable weatherproof alternative to the La Canadienne boots.

However, for those who wish to violate their self-imposed fashion austerity with the little bit of designer bling…

Donovan Boot from Tory Burch

Of the course, if our besotted suitor wishes to be the super fantastic super hero in the heart of his beloved, he will completely ignore her demurrals and offer to her these…

    Yes, because what women really want is for their clearly stated wishes to be ignored.

    If she wants black boots, presumably it’s because black goes the best with her warddrobe. If she wants square toes, it’s presumably because she finds them more comfortable for her feet. She’s not “demurring” by knowing what she wants and does not want. That you cannot find superfantastic boots that meet her specifications is not her fault.

    Far from being her hero, I think ignoring her wishes (to the tune of thirteen hundred dollars) would mark this guy as a spendthrift and a creep.

    Here we have a guy who loves his girlfriend, and wants to give her what she wants. That’s something to be applauded, not undermined.
