The Quest for Black Boots

Extensor tendinitis – inflammation of the tendons on the top of the foot, usually midway along the foot.

Something that developed for dievca after the 4 daagse: Four Days Marches years ago and affects how high or how low heels dievca can wear. It just depends upon the foot angle and the amount of wearing time. 

Years ago, dievca coveted the Rag & Bone Newbury Boots in black.  she bought a pair and was in absolute hell wearing them for 30 minutes, though they looked great!
SOLD! on eBay.

Then dievca saw someone on the street with the Rag & Bone Harrow Boots and thought the heel would be better, but when she went to try them on in the store – No Go.



For Thanksgiving, dievca wanted the KG By Kurt Geiger Spark Chunky Sole Heeled Ankle Boots:

But decided not to buy them because her Illex Kini Dancer Boots looked great with the Leather Culottes:

The Dancer boots are good for occasions, but not a heavy day of walking. So, for the past few years, dievca has gotten by with her Durango Harness Boots (9 years old) and Rag & Bone Moto Boots (4 years old):

Both pairs of boots are great for walking and have a certain look, but dievca was still keeping her eye out for everyday black boots with a higher heel.

she FOUND them!

The ACNE Studios Crackled Leather Pistol Boot.

In a distressed patent leather with a heel that is lower than the Newberry, but higher than a motorcycle boot– comfort and style has been found!

(Hmmm, we didn’t touch on OTK or Thigh-Hi black boots….something for another day.)
