I was planning on jamming all photos of my shoes with text in one blog post. But trying to categorize them as well as trying to figure out the pretties markup gave me headache. Thus, I will make separate posts for each shoe category. You’d think as a front-end developer, I would figure out the markup with my eyes closed. But man oh man, I just burned my fingers from making chicken nuggets, I’m not about to set myself in another journey.
So let’s talk about shoes! My second favorite accessories after bags.
Isabel Marant Etoile Deyissa
My latest boots purchase. Come to think of it, the last time I bought myself a pair of boots were last Summer when I bought my Dicker boots. I have been waiting for quite some time for these boots to go on sale. Honestly, I didn’t think they were ever gonna go on sale. Even a few days prior me purchasing the boots online, I checked deBijenkorf sale section (online) and they weren’t. Good thing I went back to check them again because now I’m a proud owner of these boots.
The leather is so beautiful and smooth. The first thing I did when I picked them up from the store was to bring them to the cobbler. The guy even witnessed me ripping off the tissue paper that covered the shoe box!
Isabel Marant Etoile Dicker
Second boots on the line is my other Isabel Marant boots. They have served me well for the past year and I believe they will continue to do so. I have a feeling though that my Deyissa pair will get more use than these ones eventually due to color. Although I did choose taupe because I was in the market for something else than black.
One thing I noticed about the two boots above, they require no breaking in at all. No feet were harmed in the period of me wearing them.
5th Avenue Chelsea
My oldest pair of the three. Trusty old pair of Chelsea boots. This pair has been with me for the past three years. They need some serious spa day. I think I paid around 30 or 40 euros for these shoes and they have proved their worth. The temptation is real to ‘upgrade’ them to a nicer pair, but honestly, they will look brand spanking new once I revive them.
So those are my current boots that I’ve been rotating frequently. Other boots that I do own but not mentioned are in process of rehoming. I find that I didn’t wear them enough to justify keeping them. But feel like they can worth something if I try to sell them first before donating them. Also there’s another pair of boots that I will put into “Others” category since I only wear them on a specific day.
