In preparation for boot apocalypse (waving to Zap!) I realized that I have a bit of a hole in my boot wardrobe. I don't have "universal, all-occassion" black boots that I could take with me while traveling. I have some older black booties from Merrell with a wedge heel that I normally wear in the winter and they are looking a bit worn out. They look similar to these.

Also a pair of fairly high-heeled, UWP-style booties from Aldo. Also a pair of black heeled oxfords. And black moto boots (DV Storm). I figured I got all my bases covered but now I am planning a few work trips and realizing that it would be nice to have a pair of dressy-looking, very comfortable (for lots of walking) black booties that could be worn under dress pants or over skinny pants. I think that black would be best since it would work with grey, black, brown pants.

So far the only pair I found that look reasonable are these.

What do you think? Any other ideas?
