Wanted: A Pair of Reasonably Priced Boots

Okay blogger-land friends, I need your help!  We all know that I have a slight serious shoe addiction, an addiction that I LOVE to feed often. 

Hunter Boots from Nodstrom
Meet my fabulous birthday present from back in September.  I absolutely LOVED these Hunter boots, that is, until I tried them on.  Between the stiff rubber and the placement of the seams in the sock inserts they killed my heels.  It would have been blister central people.

So, finally, I decided to give up on these lovely boots and return them.  {sigh}

Of course, I already had a back-up shoe in mind......
.......riding boots.  Well, until I saw the price tag of these beauties {$318.00.....ummmm, no thank you).  I think if I spent $318 on these Hubs might divorce me or commit me to a mental hospital for my addiction.  So, I started browsing around trying to find a similar pair that I like that has a much more reasonable price tag but unfortunately I always come back to these.

So, my friends, do any of you have any suggestions for a pretty pair of boots that are a.) reasonably priced, b.) comfy, and c.) fabulous?!  Help a girl out!

Thanks and have a wonderful day!

The Steve Madden Intyce boots are super popular! My favorites I've bought this year are black smooth leather Nine West Tumble and cognac Nine West Gellars. Favorite of all time are Via Spiga that I got for a steal at TJ Maxx. Now's a GREAT time to buy because they're all on sale! Check Piperlime, they have great deals right now.

I have been on the hunt for some adorable cowgirl boots myself. I am going to a Kenny concert this summer, and yes I am already planning my outfit! :) If I find some I will let you know!

Hunter boots are the best - skip the socks.

Frye boots definitely worth the price, you won't be sorry.

You love shoes more then me. I didn't think that was possible.

Hunters are easily the most comfortable rain boots I've ever owned! It's entirely possible you just had the wrong size on.
