Let me tell you a shoe saga. But first a confession: sometimes when I decide I want something I get obsessive about it, like cannot stop until I have just the right thing obsessive. I saw these Miista lace up booties on an Instagram account I follow and knew they looked like the perfect shoe. A lace up bootie is wearable now, adds the perfect edge to any outfit, AND transitions perfectly to fall. So I hunted for these shoes online and found them on sale. When they arrived in my size (I usually wear an 8.5 or 9, so I ordered a EU 39 which is equivalent to a 9) my toes literally hung off the end. I was crushed. I sent them back and decided to keep looking. Then I found this pair at Aldo. Well of course my size is sold out. Finally, I found this Jeffrey Campbell Cors pair. It was love. They were a total splurge, but I ordered them anyway. The leather color is what sold me. It goes with basically anything. In my search, I found multiple pairs I liked, so I thought I would share the fruit of my labor in case anyone was as crazy as me. I’ve linked them all below including multiple places to buy the Jeffrey Campbell pair because they all seem to have different sizes.
