In fall you need ankle boots. We all know that right? I bought my dream pair of ankle boots in a sale two years ago, but after the snowy winters of ’11 and ’12 they are completely ruined. This year, I should remember to clean up my shoes after walking the salt-covered streets. Actually, most of my shoes are in a bad shape and that’s why I’ve teamed up with Spartoo this winter. Spartoo is an online shoe retailer offering lots of different brands on just one website and was so gentle to offer their help in my personal color challenge. I originally challenged myself to wear more color, but since my black boots are is such awful condition, I decided it would be best to get my basic shoes ready before I start with something more daring for me. While going through all the black ankle boots, I noticed I was mostly draw to either western-inspired booties like the Refresh boots and the Clarks’ above. I do feel like they have a quite defined style though, and knowing myself well it’s probably better if I go with a more basic pair like the ones from Pare Gabia or Jonak. I already have a pair of Jonak ankle booties and love their quality and fit. So now I’m really torn between these four options. Should I stick with a basic model, or should I go west?
