Veteran forum member Laura brought Franco Sarto’s ‘Yonkers’ Stretch Boot to my attention last week because she bought a pair and was happy with her purchase. I recently tried them on and they are indeed fab. 

They don’t have a cushioning footbed but that is easily remedied with the a $2 insole from the drug store. The heel is stable and stands at three inches, and the stretchy pull-on nature of the style makes it work for narrow calves and a wider calf. I found the boot hard to pull on, but that will loosen up over time. It’s made of a synthetic material and runs true to size. 

The best thing about the boot is it’s fitted ankle. For some reason, boots that slim at the ankle are hard to find at the moment. This makes them ideal for midis and dressier occasions, which is in fact precisely why Laura bought them.

They are on sale and available in three colours, of which the mushroom gets my top vote. Some of the styles are available in narrow and wide, and sizes go up to a 12. Read the rave reviews.
