Taunted by the lack of variety of footwear in my wardrobe I’ve decided to try on anything I see that I think might have potential. Today it was these beige French Connection OTK boots.

I find this brand fits large and sizing up to a 9 from my usual 8 seems to give reasonable width despite the somewhat pointed toe.

I don’t really want an OTK boot. It’s not terribly comfortable. But I wouldn’t mind a beige boot. And I wouldn’t mind something with a slightly pointy toe.

The top of these is faux leather and the zip is contained to the lower part of the boot.

What do you think? Could the boot be shortened to below the knee? If you were going to do this would you go to a tailor or a shoe maker?

TIA for sharing your thoughts and experiences!
