Hi all, I've been to 3 different shoe stores, and then Walmart and Meijer, and I can't seem to find the kind of winter boots I'm looking for. The kind I have are "ok" ...but they're pretty short. They would be perfect if they could only be about 3 inches taller. The boots I have almost want to be ankle boots, (they're a little higher than that) - but I still need them higher. I've given up looking around for a decently-priced pair in shoe stores, they're all $70 + .......and need a cheaper pair. I'm about to go searching on Amazon. I always seem to find whatever I'm looking for there. Only one problem, can't try them on first. It's a risk, but I always buy boots one size bigger than my shoe-size (6 1/2) - I usually will go for a 7 or even 7 1/2 when it comes to boots. Amazon has great deals, too....just the sizing will be tricky. Have you ever bought shoes or boots online? How did it go? Any size problems?
