Research Notes: Fab, Chic, and Cheap Boots!

It's boot season! I solely believe that boots are a great investment. A good quality boot may cost you some $$$ but will last you for many years if you treat it right. Boots are more difficult to buy because not only must you fit width-wise, you must also fit calf-wise. These two factors in combination may make it frustrating for shoe-lovers to find a boot solemate. It's definitely frustrating for me. I have about a 15" calf circumference, which means I can buy the very abundant 15" calf boots but I find many of them do not allow for me to move in them (do you know what I mean?). Whether you have narrow, normal, or wide calves, there is a boot for you! I did some shoe research and found 3 knee-high boots for 3 different calf widths, under or around $100 (and available in at least 5 shoe sizes). Enjoy!
