Advice please!

I bought what I thought were the Mars boots on Yoox for $250, but they're a slightly different style with a double stacked sole. I am not sure about the sole, I've stepped on the lip a few times, and I have to admit I prefer the clean lines of the Mars.

What do you think??

They are nice. But, I think that if you prefer the clean lines of the Mars, then you should just hold out for them.

erica said...

thanks, jennifer. i so often fall into the trap of buying something because of the price and not because i'm completely satisfied with it.

I like them from the side and the back but that lip at the front you see from the top is a bit funny

Mona Vernon said...

No no no, too clunky and feels not like you

I must say that I like them much more than I thought I would. They are cool, different, and kind of architectural. But if you don't feel comfortable then it is irrelevant!

joyce said...

not a huge fan. with the money you can put a lot toward what you really want!

erica said...

they're definitely different, if it weren't for that lip in front, i would be a lot happier about them.

i agree, the platform in the front part of the shoe is clunky and pretty awkward looking. i think you should return them and get the ones you really want!

maybe set up an ebay search? i see them up for auction from time to time.

leanne said...

Agree with everything above. Hold out for the ones you know are what you want.

grey-nyc said...

ps. i don't know what the shipping cost would be and if it would be worthwhile for you, but i saw piperlime has a 20% coupon
(XH74HTHC3KBV), and they have the mars in several colors.

i think i'll hold off on ankle boots for now and try my luck on ebay or LoGE. i just ordered my top and skirt from j.crew. i went with the petite size, which should be 2 inches shorter. hopefully i can wear flats and not look too stumpy!

i agree, i'd wait for the mars. for that much money you don't want to think down the line "well, i like these except X" which often happens to me over and over again. with that said, i really like everything else about them, the leather looks really soft.

those are cute but not as classic as the mars. i have the mars boot and love them! i've had them about 2 years and they just keep getting better with age.

Jade said...

hey erica, those are definitely funky and cool, but i don't think they work as well for interviews as the mars. scheduled a listing for the nash for 3/1. let me know if you're interested.

leanne said...

Jade - tell me about the Nash too. I love them and wished I would have bought them!!

Jade said...

hey Leanne, just listed them on loge! feel free to e-mail me with questions: nikoshkopa(at)gmail

also, have you seen the samantha pleet arc boots? i have a pair of her blixens, and they are VERY comfortable. she made a black version of the arc and they are more reasonably priced than comey's shoes. check out myrtle's website. i am thinking about the turquoise pair.

I kind of like them, now that I see them on you, but you don't love them, send them back. Especially since they're not what you thought you were getting in the first place.
