Have you ever noticed that when you’re looking for something specific, you can never EVER find it. Yet, when you’re not looking for anything, you see a million things you want? Ugh! Welcome to the story of my shoe loving life.
Each fall I scour the stores, web, all of my favorite fashion blogs and magazines for the perfect boot to add to my burgeoning shoe collection and each fall I am remise to find exactly what I’m looking for. I think I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect moto boot now going on 5 years. No. Joke. Not that I don’t have moto boots. I do. I have a gorgeous pair from Sam Edelman…but they’re sleek, have a heel and are a bit more “dress up”. I also have a pair from Ash. They’re more of he hard knock, heavy, serious ass kicking type of moto boot. I love them both. But, I’m missing something. I can’t articulate it, but I’d know it if I saw it…
And then it hit me while I was watching The Walking Dead. I need Miccone’s combat boots! That’s it! All this time I was looking for a casual moto boot, when all I really needed was a simple pair of combat boots. Duh! I haven’t figured out where Michonne’s are from yet. I know that they’re rollover and have some type of gold studding on them.
A slew of celebrities have been spotted in the trend recently, including rocker and party pal, Ke$ha, who sports the Bess Rollover combat boot that runs for over $400. It’s currently out of stock, but, I’m also looking to pay a little less than that :)
So far, these boots from Luisa Viaroma are favorite…but of course they’re even more than the Bess at $815.
One the other end of the spectrum, we have these rollover combat boots from Soda that are only $30.
