I have been looking for a combat type like boot for what feels like forever. I know I tried last year without luck and I thought we were heading in the same direction this year too. Nothing that I found seemed to fit right or they were lined with winter material and that wasn't what I really wanted. I wanted a fun pair of boots to wear with skinny jeans or my lululemon aligns. I had found a pair at The Shoe Company but when I got them home and walked around the house they just were not right. So when I returned them and stopped at Sportchek since it was in the same parking lot. I found these Roxy boots and they were regularly $104 but on sale for $59. For some reason, it was just the black ones but not the brown ones but I wanted black so I was quite happy. I tried them on and I wasn't sure about them. Penelope said they were great and she is usually quite honest with her feedback of things I buy haha. So I bought them and wore them around the house and I decided I liked them. One might say I even loved them. I have worn them several times and they are super comfy and because they have a tiny bit of a barely there heel, they work well for comfort with my achilles issues. The only thing I don't love about them is the laces. They are HUGE!!!
You can see in this photo the massive laces. If I ever get around to buying smaller laces, I will switch them out, I just feel like the laces are obnoxious and super noticable when I wear them and not in a good way. It is probably all in my mind but it is all I think about when I wear them haha.
These are no longer on sale at Sportchek but keep an eye out if you are looking for a pair of boots like these because they tend to have some really good sales all of the time.
