shoes? shoes.

maggie gyllenhaal in her rachel comey penpal short boots.

at gimme shoes in whiskey, on sale for $236 from $338, sizes 8, 8.5, and 9. in navy, sizes, 8, 8.5, 9, and 9.5.

update: 7.5 and 9.5 at kickpleat for $232


also at gimme shoes, repetto zizi in textured dark grey, on sale for $180 from $260, in sizes 38.5, 39, 40, 40.5.


the dark brown zizis at creatures of comfort, size 39.5 only, on sale $213 from $285.

definitely size up for the zizis. i wear a 39.5 (or 8.5-9), and these 39.5s were a tiny bit too small.

I semiregret selling the penpals. Also caved to the Bella band today. Sigh. Hope you had a lovely holiday! I miss the snow.

hey erica - i was wondering if you've taken your no.6 ankle boots out for a spin in the recent snow. i love the look of the 15" shearlings, but at full price i'm only able to rationalize them as a "winter weather boot" and hoping they'll stand up to the elements. any 'user reviews' you'd have would be great! thanks :)

marti-the dress is vintage according to the nytimes.

no zizis yet, maybe for my birthday if they're marked down a little bit more.

as for the no.6s, i think they're weatherproof, but i would not wear them in the snow. i prefer a flexible sole for snow and ice, and it would be a shame to let salt go on them. i think they're perfect winter boots, but only when it's freezing but dry outside.

erica, any sense how comfortable the rachel comey penpal boots are compared to the no. 6's? I own and absolutely love my no. 6's (and am not a heels sort of girl); do you think the rachel comey boots will end up aching my feet?

erica said...

wish i knew whether the penpal boots were as comfortable as the no.6s. maybe someone else knows. i have wide, flat feet, and rachel comey shoes tend to run narrow, so i've regrettably stayed away from them.

happy holidays, everyone!

the penpal boots are a bit narrow. i also have wide feet, but i do ok in mine (i went a half size up), though they do hurt a bit after a full day in them. but i think they stretch; i've only worn mine 4 or 5 times and they are definitely more comfortable now than they were at first. hope that helps!

wythe said...

Thanks for the response erica & susie! I somewhat suspected as much with the penpal boots. I'm on my feet all day and probably would regret getting anything that wasn't as comfortable as the no. 6's. Perhaps that means another pair in a different color of the no. 6's in my future. Happy holidays ladies!

That Maggie Gyllenhaal. I suspect she has many cool items lurking in her closet.

I love those boots!

Love the penpal, and just saw that Urban Outfitters has a contributor by rachel comey boot, similar to penpal for $88, but I wonder about the quality.
