How Many Boots is Too Many Boots?

Boots are my favorite shoes.  They come in so many varieties, and I basically want them all.  Especially this burgundy suede pair.  (Hello, Matt…Christmas is coming!)

These Chelsea boots are the ones Matt got me for Christmas last year.  They are amazing, I wear them constantly, and they are perfect for walking all day and still looking cute.  I feel like everyone should have a pair.  In England, actually, I think everyone does.

I also have these ankle boots, and while they are NOT great for walking around all day, they are great for looking adorable.  They go with skinnies and skirts, and always make me feel fierce.  Love these, even if my feet are sore at the end of the day.  (My Nana always said, “It hurts to be beautiful.”)

These are the wellies I have, from LL Bean (except I have the tall pair).  Although I’ve had these for years, they’re basically a necessity here where it rains almost every day.  I also have the fleece liners that go with these, which I highly, highly recommend. 

These Doc Martens I’ve had since they were cool the first time fifteen years ago.  I’m glad I kept mine (which I actually bought on my first trip to London in 2000), because they’re definitely back in style.  And bad-ass, obviously.  I’ll probably save them forever — you know they’ll come around again eventually.  Mine have a steel toe, though, so they weigh about 50 lbs.  My legs get a workout when I wear these all day.


These winter boots are the best boot purchase I’ve made in years.  Super warm, super comfy, and cute.  I think they’re supposed to be warm down to -40 degrees F.  If I’m ever somewhere where it’s that cold, I’ll let you know if they work, but they have been great in winters in DC and Boston so far.

These are the boots I currently “need” because the pair I have are absolutely beat up.  Riding boots are a staple I think, and I wore my last pair into the ground.  So this is my current top choice to replace my retired riding boots.

These are also on my wish list, or something like these.  I love wedge heels — I just feel like they’re easier to walk in and they’re something a little different.  I’m not sure if I love the contrast sole/heel or if I’d rather have a solid color.  Still debating. 

Clearly I have a problem.  Because that’s eight pair of boots, and I feel like it’s the bare minimum that I “need”.  Does anyone else share my obsession?  I’m sure I’m not alone.
