Finally got my hands on the Balenciaga boots in my size (Thank you Santa!), and I couldn’t be happier. I was having a talk about it with a friend who’s had them for two years, and I said to her when I first saw them on Rumi Neely I thought they looked quite bulky and as time went by, I somehow got used to them. It’s like the Isabel Marant sneakers at first. Surpringly enough they are quite versatile and can be worn with jeans or a dress/skirt with socks or tights or without. Truth is, I was looking for a bad-ass boot and couldn’t find anything as close to these, so I splurged… Another interesting fact: they are heavy – so it makes me exercise a little which isn’t a bad thing after all…
