Shoe Shopping...

Gentlemen, I apologize. Instead of reading the post, I suggest you watch this clip.

Ladies, less dramatically it is not making out with a patient's father that I need to discuss, but actual shoes. 

I need 'em. I just bought a super-cute pair of casual sneakers to replace my last pair of super-cute casual sneakers which I have worn holes into. But alas, as I have discovered, super-cute as they are, my new sneakers are failing on one very important front: keeping my feet warm. Not only are they made of very lightweight material, but the top is low cut, leaving my ankle and part of the top of my foot exposed. In weather that can only get colder, this will never do.

So I need new shoes. Something warm. Something cute. Something durable as they will be worn frequently whilst commuting to NYC in shitty winter weather. Something as versatile as the super-cute sneakers which can be worn with most casual wear, which is the bulk of my wardrobe. Something comfortable as I don't have the budget for cute-but-not-comfortable. Something with no or a very low heel, my feet don't handle heels well (I feel that they could if I could afford decent high-heeled shoes, but, see above). 

I don't know what this shoe is. It might be a sneaker, though I fear sneakers aren't warm enough. It can't be a clog because they give me smelly feet. It could be a flat but all the flats I see are either mostly open on top or ugly as sin. It might be a boot, as long as it doesn't have too much of a heel, but most do, aside from which many are tall boots which are generally out of the price range (and I don't have skinny jeans) and I don't know how I feel about ankle boots. 

I did have one great pair of black boots with a low heel that were comfy and came just a few inches above my ankle and I wore the hell out of them. I miss them and wish I could find just that so I guess that's what I'm looking for. Suggestions? I know I'm just going to end up scouring Zappos but I thought I'd throw it out there in case someone knows of a place like or something.

Gentlemen, lace bra. As you were.

I don't know how you feel about this, but I am pretty sure you just described a pair of Ugg boots, or a at least a cheaper knock off of them.

I myself have given into the furry ugg rip off slide clog. Not very durable for the city, however I strongly recomend it to other college students. It's like a slipper you are allowed to wear outside.

Shoe shopping, it's my favorite thing to do during holidays.
