Most of my truly comfortable shoes come from Naturalizer. I also get a ton of compliments the shoes I own from there. During a recent visit to Naturalizer, I spotted these lace up boots. I want them! They are a perfect leather boot for winter. I can wear them with pants and skirts. Since they don't have a tall shaft, I don't have to worry about them being too small for my calves like most boots. They also have a sturdy heel for navigating winter terrain.
Naturalizer sells them in black (pictured), brown and a tan suede & leather mix. They are also currently on sale for $99 from $120. I wish I was employed and could afford these because I'd be ordering my size 11s right now.
