I ordered a few pairs of booties from Anthro during a big sale to try out. Two have been ruled out because they are not comfortable enough. But I am liking this pair of gunmetal Botkier Texas boots (photos 1-4, 9). I am considering keeping them (final price was about $70 so quite a good deal imho). Comfort seems to be good, and I love the color — this is my kind of silver and shine, not too bright!

Photos 5-8 and 10 show my existing pair of boots in a similar color. They are Elie Tahari from about 6 years old and very comfortable and broken in, but I’m liking the more current and casual style of the Botkiers. I’d probably keep the Taharis for a while to see if they still get worn (they are a little dressier, so I can see how they might serve a slightly different purpose).

Any reactions or opinions?

I am trying to keep myself to four or fewer wardrobe purchases per month in 2019. If I keep these, that will make my second purchase of the year. This is making me more selective!
