so thank you all for your wonderful feedback! i went to the no. 6 store today (to get the boy's feedback) and came across these:
they're incredibly soft and very warm and the saleslady said the color suited me far better than the grey option they also had available. though i had gone in for the shorter aviator or shearling black, both she and the boy (!!!) also said these were a better color choice for me. so i bought them. it's the most expensive thing i have ever purchased for myself and i'm sort of shell shocked and kind of want to return them. the boy went into hugo boss and also committed himself to a rather hefty purchase. strange, as he is typically the naysayer when it comes to shopping. but he said for the value and quality, go for it. i also saw something similar to the acne pistols in the store. but they looked more like fryes than not, so i decided to walk away without closer inspection. i WILL, however, be going back for these definitely:
these i may get in the grey. they are 27" of wonderful, soft, heavenly beauty. the grey nubuck is not snowproof so i may have to get the black or another hard leather color. they would go wonderfully with all my leather skirts i've been banking on for the cool weather. SO, given this new situation, i will probably not get the ndc's and keep these shearling ones. i am wondering if these are a bit too trendy. i know free people have a sort of similar version and everyone has produced a clog of some sort this year and the trickle down version will only worsen. :) so....should i keep them? or get the shorter version:
ah decisions decisions. the boy definitely compounded my problem by giving these a million thumbs ups and plunking down the money for them without hesitation. i was going to go home and think them over. i think what will happen now is that i will broaden my collection and maybe stop buying millions of shoes, lol. still have my heart set on the margiela geo heels from the previous post as maybe the pistols if i can find a pair in real life. i was hesitant about purchasing them because of the suede. suede is a mother to keep clean. especially when it's cold. or wet. or humid. or it just rained. you get the idea.
if you want other images of the new boots, you can see the entire lookbook here.
thanks again for the incredible feedback! you guys definitely came through for me!
