I just can't find my *perfect* boots!

OK I need boots that are:

1.WATERPROOF (it is always wet here)
2.Have a heel (medium)
3.Go with mostly everything
4.Will be a good enough fit for someone with very NARROW calves (ie, I don't want to look like I have pencils sticking out of buckets but I can cope with it not being an extreme tight fit)

Do such boots exist?
I will save for them if I have to. Hopefully nothing more than £150 but will stretch a teeny bit more to get a perfect pair.

S&B ladies help me please!

wellies?
waterproof?

look at duo

Waterproof like leather, unlike suede which water comes through. Was hoping to avoid wellies grin

Can they be clumpy ish? Biker boot style or not? Look at Oxygen boots

www.duoboots.com for calf fitting - can't be beaten if you're not 'standard' calf size.

Oxygen style would only go with a teeny percent of what I own. I am more a smart casual dresser. Would be good for the weather though!

Clarks do leather boots with goretex which are waterproof.

I think you need to narrow it down a bit grin so far we are looking for:

Leather boots with a medium heel confused

Do you want a specialist narrow calf fitting?

Knee high?

Ankle?

Calf?

Colour?

Block/thin heel?

How high?

Budget?

Thank you! Do DUO boots last well?

Oops

yes! duo boots last very well, if you have them regularly reheeled and soled when necessary they can last years and years.
