I've just got a new black pair from Clarks, knee high and medium heel, to replace my similar ones from 6 years ago... I also have some brown ones from last year, a pair of sheepskin ones and two pairs of oldish shorter ones. The problem is I can't bring myself to throw any away...

I have one pair smile

Too many to say, but in my defence i have had them a lot of them for a long time. smile

That's what I mean... my very old pair needs re-heeling and the leather has lost its shape a bit.... it's time to say goodbye, isn't it?

1 pair of ankle boots. They are lovely, from Russell & Bromley. No other boots due to big calves sad.

2 pairs of Fitflop Supertone tall boots (olive and black) plus 2 pairs of Fitflop Supertone short boots (tan and black). I 'discovered' them to help my bad back and feet (plantar fasciitis) and now rarely wear anything else!!

Too many. I have very narrow feet so spend the whole winter in boots with inner soles and thick socks.

I have 4 pairs.

3 from Duo- a black suede kitten heel pair that are for "best" and I adore.

A black riding boot style with buckles.
A brown retro pair - flat - for tucking jeans into.

Jones Bootmaker- calf high tan biker boots which i wear under or over jeans etc.

I am a sucker for boots.

1 x brown high heeled boots (nine west - same as black)
1 x suede wedge boots (dune - silly buy and won't wear)
1 x grey suede mid length boots (clarks - fab from this year)

A black pair of biker boots and a beige faux-suede wintery pair I've had since school!

I would like a pair of flat ankle boots to wear with dresses and a pair of after-ski type things in case we have another cold winter.

HandMini Wed 21-Sep-11 19:41:06

ZERO! And I would love to buy some lovely smart(ish) but every day ones for the winter this year. I'm crap at shopping for shoes/boots, so any pointers for people's favourites would be great.
