This is about what I feel like anytime I go shopping for shoes.
Thanks, NatalieDee.com for putting it into Web comic form.
Especially dress boots.
A few years ago I found a great pair of black, leather boots with a simple square toe and not-too-high heel.
They are fabulous with jeans, skirts and dresses.
They are not too short and not too tall.
The leather is soft, but durable.
They also were $200 boots that I found for $70 at Nordstrom Rack in Broomfield, Colo.
It was pure luck and good timing that I found the perfect boots at a store four states from home.
If they'd had more, I would have bought every pair.
Because buying boots is a pain.
And while these are great, they are now about four years old and starting to show it, no matter how much I baby them and take them to my favorite repair guy every summer for an overhaul.
So I am back in the market for boots.
The problem? I am 6 feet tall. That comes with some big ol' feet.
They are not wide, just very, very long.
I have tried every pair of black boots Zappos has, I have tried going back to the Rack here in So Cal, I have tried several boots from Nordstrom.com.
Basically I am on the lookout for great boots anywhere I go and anytime of year now.
In the end, I think it will just have to be another moment of good luck.
