Boots for gf

    Boots for gf

    post #1 of 9
    Thread Starter 

    Hello all, so I bought these pair of Dior boots for my gf. We live in Houston,Texas and she likes wearing boots and I thought she'd love them and enjoy wearing them to the rodeo and similar events, especially that they're "western" style with an urban elegance to them.

    However, after I bought them I had some remorse due to the fact that she might not like their style especially that I am not an expert in women boots (or shoes in general), while she is. I am starting to think that I might have been better off getting her a typical gift (sunglasses, perfume, etc...). So before I present them to her can I take your opinion ladies on whether I should man up and give it to her or just sell them again and get her something else? What kind of events are they suitable for? Are there fashion days over? Here are some pictures I found for them (they go for 1400-1800 but I got them much less than that):

    Thanks :)

    I'd run it by her before taking off the tags.

    I know my gf would not like those boots at all but everyone is different. Though, for that price you could buy her a very nice pair of handmade ostrich Lucchese or Nacona boots. Those are really the best cowboy boots you can buy but you have to take her to get fitted. There are lots of real boots shops in Houston where you can find those. Made in Texas and will never go out of style.

    Lucchese quality and attention to detail is exceptional IMO.

    Please do not flame me. No expert in rodeo boots, but I think it is a no go and here's why:

    1) the look is dated -- too tall to be practical and the heel is too pointed (thus minimizing the base of support for good posture/balance). For this type of heel the length should be mid-calf!

    2) in-between-style: neither riding boots, nor walking/dancing boots. Just to show off for an hour or so;

    3) TX can get too d*mn hot to wear them comfortably;

    4) 'Scuse me? color olive?

    5) What's the thing on the side?

    Just to address your point #1 - with Lucchese, the heel and toe are not fixed or standard. They are custom made to fit the individual. As far as being dated, depends on the style and there are quite a few to choose from.

    Just wanted to thank ya'll for the helpful feedback. I decided to pass on these boots and let her pick up a pait of Lucchese ones :)
