I need your help. What I really, really, really want is a pair of these boots

Anna Sui Shakoha suede ankle boots

But I need to pay less than 231.83 euro +35 shipping! shock

Any body able to suggest some similar boots for half the price with free or less outrageous shipping rates?

I am none of the things you mentioned in your title, what do you like about the boots?

Is it because they are fitflop?
Do you like the suede with furry interior.
Do you like that slightly Native American Indian look?

When you say you want them cheaper, what is your budget?

these can be turned down, suedette though, but they are mucho cheaper.

Yeah I like that slightly navajo look, and I like that they're not totally flat, they'd give me a little bit of height.. I think I'm going to fall over backwards in totally flat boots. I like that they look cosy but not really boring.. so many ugg-ish boots look v. boring imo.

The ones you linked to just look like more of the same (ugg-ish)..

these have a slight heel.

rioter with a very chunky sole, but totally different from the ones you linked to, I just like them.

AnnaSui Wed 11-Nov-09 13:16:45

ooooh I like the 2nd and 3rd boots you linked to there momijigari. Very good investigations. Hadn't heard of that website cara...

I like the fringe ones too - can you tell I spend too much time googling shoes etc? I think I need to get a job.

AnnaSui Wed 11-Nov-09 18:02:18

Get a job googling shoes. I'm sure there's an opening for that somewhere...

.....if only, it would be the perfect sahm with an sn child who is at school kind of job - it wouldn't have to pay much.

Please let me know what you end up getting. <nosey git emoticon>

I have an sn child too and he's gone on the bus from 8.30 to 3.30, so for the first time in YEARS I'm thinking, I could maybe handle a part-time job without definitely bringing on a nervous break-down! But, coool my jets, there are no jobs.

So back to boots!

I thought these weren't bad, not the same but they have a similar feel.

And quarter the price.

I like them, they are different form the op! I saw some rocket dog ones quite similar in Office. They look very cosy!
