The Lowdown: While we wouldn’t bother to drop a lot of cash on a pair of, say, silver platform salsa sandals (for the record, we’d get ours via Patricia Field at Payless), we do see the logic in spending a little more on a footwear wardrobe staple like a great pair of boots. Since we pretty much wear them to death, quality boots are a must to get the most mileage from our investment.
Still, seeking a sale is just the way we roll, so were we in the market we’d definitely check out this deal at Endless.com, saving an extra 20% on select boots (and, scanning the selections, there are plenty of fab styles to choose from). While we love gray boots right now, we’re afraid they’ll look dated before long, so we’d recommend a standard but stand-out pair of black or brown. We like this black BCBG Loberto Platform Boot, on sale for $98.72, and on the brown front, we dig this Diba Sawyer Boot, on sale starting at $84.39.
