Naturalizer, Naturally!

I've been suffering from a boot obsession for the past few months. Back in September I started the search for the perfect pair of black, knee-high, boots with a heel. Fashion does not have to be painful in my opinion. It also doesn't have to cost a fortune.

So I headed to the internet to find comfortable, cute, cheap boots. Oh and did I mention that on top of all of that I also require wide calf? Yup, that's me, Miss High Expectations! Nice to meet ya!

Upon coming across a qualifying pair, I snatched them up like nobody's buiznazz. The beauts were a pair of Naturalizers at Macy's. These boots are super comfy and fit perfectly.

Reg. $99.00
Sale $84.99


I was so pleased with my first pair of boots that I felt I just had to have another. This time, I looked far and wide to find the exact style I wanted: dark brown, riding, not too much extra junk on them - a buckle or two, tops.

I ended up purchasing a pair from DSW that were the exact style that I was seeking (you may remember the riding boots list I posted not too long ago). The only problem is they weren't wide legged and didn't fit. With a heavy heart, I returned the beloved boots and headed back to the internet.

I finally realized that a good thing is not to be messed with and it was smart that I find another pair by Naturalizer. I know they provide everything I am looking for since I already own the other boots made by this brand. Plus, I am pretty confident that these boots will fit perfectly like the others. My only issue is the style. I think they are cute and I will totally wear them...a lot...but I didn't fall in love with them instantly. They are just OK.


Naturalizer Shoes, Array Wide Calf Boots
$149.99
(BUT, I only paid $127.49 with tax because I found a code for 15% off and free shipping! booya!)


I can't wait to receive them and am hoping that in person I will like them much more.

Have any of you made a purchase that you were unsure of and ended up being happy?

You know what, I feel like 85% of the people I talk to say that they need a wide calf in boots. Doesn't this mean that boot-makers need to freakin' widen them? Geez! :)

I’m with you and comfort is key. There is nothing worse than being out and about, having a good time with painful shoes ruining everything. Naturalizer is a great brand and I have a pair of boots from them that I absolutely love.

Please let me know if you like the Array boots. I’m thinking of buying them. There is a deal on Piperlime where they’re only about $75 with a coupon code and eBates is doing 8% cash back!!
