How to find the perfect pair of boots

Now, I know I went through this dilemma last year… but as fall quickly approaches again here in Toronto there is nothing I want more then another pair of boots!

I’ve really been wanting a flat pair of combat boots, but over the past two years I haven’t been able to find a pair that I was 100% committed to buying, so I kept putting it off.

I know it’s only September but here in Toronto the temperature has already starting to decrease quicker than expected! So as I search for my perfect pair of combat boots, here are a few things I consider when it comes to making the investment of $300 – $1,000.

  1. Are these a style I’ll be able to wear for at least 2-3 years?
  2. Are they water/winter proof? (This is super important; with our winters you don’t want to be wearing delicate boots as they will get destroyed quickly)
  3. Do they have proper grips on the bottom? (If the sole is flat it either means they are not for the right season or they were made in a country where Winter snow is not an issue)
  4. Am I paying for the quality or for the designer label? (Quality is obviously the most important)
  5. How many different ways can I wear them?
  6. Do I think they will possibly go on sale? (Sometimes this will make me think “I should wait”)
  7. Can I find them in store so I am able to try them on? Or what is the return policy like?

Seems like a lot of work for a pair of boots right? Well at least when I think through all of the above I don’t feel as guilty spending a large amount of money on something I really love!

I’ll keep you posted on my findings!
