My favorite boots in the eighties were high heeled, pointed toe and about 6 or 8 straps going around the calf, with a buckle on the side. A zipper went up the back. They were patent leather and oh so cool. I saw some almost exactly like 'em at Kohl's last month, but they make boots for people with stick-figure legs. My calves wouldn't fit!

Go to your local cobler he can make you a pair.
I was wearing Dingo Boots, Leather tire tread sandles, and Penny loafers as a kid. Sports had me in High Top tennis shoes or deck shoes, and of course cletes I am sure there are other guys that remember my cletes too!
I am in Heaven, Movies this summer are going to be good.
Have to see Cinderela Story, War of The Worlds, Fantastic 4, Batman Reborn, and others.

I can't afford what she'd charge! Just to get the h's dress shoes re-soled was $55! And, it took about a month.
(She's been doing business here in the village for about 30 years+ and is the only cobbler around)
I imagine custom made boots would be around 6 months' time and $400.

my favorite boots in 2005 are black leather, with HUGE chunky heels and zippers up the sides.

my favorite boots were the ones that came just above the ankle with skinny heels and the chain wrapped around going under the heel.

I have 2 favorite pairs of boots right now. One pair comes just below my knees & zips up the side with a semi-chunky heel & the other pair comes about 2 inches above my ankles, with kinda squared toes & heels that are not to thick & not too thin. I love boots!!!

Last year, I bought a pair of black knee high Ferragamo flat heeled boots! I love them to distraction. I'm scared to wear them...

If I could get away with it I'd wear my boots year round. I love shoes but boots are my favorite. Funny thing though, I hate wearing shoes! That's the first thing to come off when I walk in the house.
