    here in Verona there's a store that probably retails them. Don't know any e-store selling tricker's. And m!ch, I'm sorry I only know where you can find them in Verona, that is 2 hours from Milan(in case some of your friends is coming). I can even proxy them for you guys, but I think you better get a proxy from England, that may be cheaper!

    I just picked up baby's first boots about a month ago -- simply Clark's desert boot in brown. I'm still not sure how I feel about them. They've only got about a week of wear in them, and they still hurt my heel a bit due to the rub in the back. After the first day I threw some dr. scholl's in them and it didn't help with the heel :-( I do love the way they look now that they've molded, though.

    in the ffirst two months i had the same problem with my wallabees. i could only wear them once in a week and then wait till the blisters were gone again and it didnĀ“t hurt too much to wear them again...but now they are really a pair of comfy shoes...

    Any opinions on these boots? They seem like they'd look okay with slim jeans which is what I'm after, I'm leaning more towards the black ones I think.

    Not my cup of tea, but the black ones look nicer.

    So I was looking around on-line at work and stumbled across these...

    http://www.ballyhoovintage.com/63/63280.html

    I'd say that they are the best looking boots I've ever seen, so I'm wondering if anyone can recommend something as close as possible to them. I'm guessing that White's Semi-Dress would be about as close as I could get, but those are quite pricey, so if anyone has a more economical suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

    The White's SD were also my first thought, maybe you could try to get them cheaper on ebay.
    I could really recommend them, lovely boots, great quality and even more important superb fit.

    And have you considered military issued boots, they look pretty much the same, maybe with a bit lesser quality leather.
    They should be around at thrift stores for pretty cheap prices.

    Most of the military type of boots that I've had have been more of the modern style with a thick rubber sole, which, while phenominally comfortable, aren't the most stylish looking things in the world. I'd like to find something that is very classic looking, and comfortable.
