If I have to own up to one weakness, it's impulse shoe purchases -- especially black ankle boots at a discount.
I originally purchased a version of these boots last year with an ankle strap. The last pair held up with near daily wear all summer and through the New York City winter -- the elastic at both sides of the ankle made them super comfortable.
Now, a more classic version of these boots has popped up in Solestruck's annual end-of-summer sale (30 percent off regular-priced shoes, extra 40 percent off everything on sale). I'm into the distressed leather edition, pictured left, and this uber-cool, oil-slicked pair (which sadly for everyone but me, comes only in a size 11).
I just splurged on Solestruck's last pair of Kenzo moto boots, so I'm restraining myself from purchasing these -- but my loss can perhaps be your gain.
