I recently broke my $150 or less shoe rule for these babies. They were on sale and I had a little bit of store credit at Mohawk, but I was still really nervous about how much I was spending. I wondered if Rachel Comey boots were really as great as every cool girl gushes about, or if it’s just brand hype. Well, I can attest to the fact that it is not brand hype, and that they are the most comfortable and versatile boots ever. I walked four miles around Queens the other day in them and didn’t feel an ounce of pain. I thought they might make me kind of look like a pirate, but the backs just make the shoe more interesting looking. I will admit that Billy’s reaction to them probably puts them in the category of “girl cute” and not “boyfriend cute” like 25% of my clothing, but whatevs- I like my grandma sweaters, thankyouverymuch. Totally worth the dough.
