My surrounding TJMaxx's seem to mostly have lower-tier items, things made for the market, seldom the real "find".

Just came across a group of Munro and Frye footwear and I was so astounded I scooped some up to try at home. In store I never have on the right hose/socks/pants, and they have those doo-hickies on them.

Here are the items:
Munro Robyn in animal print ! Whoa! I never tried the Robyn because a) I thought the heel was too high/narrow for me. It's not! and b) the Munro shoe last does not quite "get me" in a lot of styles. They run too narrow through toebox even sized up, relative to heel. These seem to fit really well (pending true-life tryon). Plus, the leopard is somewhat "soft", taupey. These might be a way to add a touch of interest but not too crazy.
--?? too last -season? or some staying power, if they work with outfits?

Munro wedge ? pump. Though the toe is a little square, for some wacky reason these appeal to me with straight and tapered pants --they seem to make things look more dressed-up. And burgundy is softer than black. Need to try with more pants, with tights and skirts. May be in-store sales goggles. Hmm.

Frye -2 booties--one may be Carson laceup. Will add photo if I can find.
Another is similar toe-shaped above-ankle boot. Both in dark brown with blackened antiquing. They look very fun with pants--the pointier toe looks good because it balances the more sedate trouser look. BUT: these are $$ even on discount. I don't need both, and may not need either! Boot is more...standard. Lace-up... fits closer to ankle and may work with better with narrower pants. Again, need to try.
YLF question: If they work, is the pointy toe part of standard boot-wear or very transient? Frye makes a lot of rounder-toes (or has) so if I were investing in Fryes, I should get some tall boots with rounder toes which are usually are more foot-friendly . Again, could be, "it's Frye! and they're on sale!"

Just had to bring them home in order to think and compare, to see any of them actually DO something for outfits. Maybe the cold light of home will help.
