Walking through the shoe section at Nordstrom Rack I spotted these chelsea boots which, unbelievably were marked down from $365.00 to $139.97. I have a pair of black chelsea boots (Sam Edelman 'Justin' that I like very much but they have a 2 1/2" heel and a higher shaft making them more boot-like while these seem more shoe-like. Also these have the wingtip detail which gives them different look. I do have a preference for black footwear though I've been trying to branch out a bit. I love the quality of the Paul Green's--they really are beautiful shoes but I'm trying to decide if I really need them. On one level I think they would fill a different purpose, as flats, they are very comfortable. I also think that I might wear them further into the spring since they are less boot-like. Or is the drastic markdown effecting my brain (i.e. "sale goggles"). My question is--would you buy a second pair of black chelsea boots when the major difference is heel/shaft height? I originally walked away from them but then returned to the Rack this morning to try them at home.
