For those in the market for a pair of tall booties, consider the Aquatalia Ryann Ankle-Strap Suede & Leather Boots, which are now on a steep sale at Lord + Taylor in black (on a lesser sale here). I would suggest sizing up, if you have normal or wide feet, as I find Aquatalia shoes to fit somewhat narrow. The Ryann booties are comfortable (for shoes with 3.25″ heels), and require no break-in period; they are also weatherproof so I don’t have to baby them the way I do other shoes with suede uppers. I plan to review these shoes in the near future, but expect them to sell out before my post is ready.
Another Aquatalia style on steep sale that I would recommend is the Palmer Wedge Booties. I liked these enough to immediately order a second pair for my mom, who now wears them all the time. The Palmer Booties are still in stock in all sizes at Lord + Taylor, but you can also find them on sale at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Zappos, and Bloomingdale’s.
Here are more sale boots for your consideration:
Blog housekeeping item: posting will be sporadic–more so than usual–for the next two weeks. All’s well, I just didn’t finish scheduling posts before a trip.
