What to do when your dream boot has vanished, with no restocking on the horizon? Do as I have in a couple of cases, and try ebay. Here, three fave finds...
1.Stuart Weitzman Setaside, a wonderful calf-conforming, minimalist design in leather or suede, 20+ pairs on offer as of early March 2016. This one has a skinny-minnie listed circumference of 12.75", retailed for $595 and sold out in my size everywhere before I could try it personally :( The relative steals on ebay are well worth exploring, especially since Weitzman essentially remakes this same classic style year after year, tacking on a new name, and year after year it sells like hotcakes. Read reviews on this style.
2. Tory Burch Christy (shown below on my skinny legs), brown or black, 20+ pairs on sale as of March '16
See my comments here for this sought-after, virtually disappeared luxe riding style, including ankle, calf & opening measurements. Retail $495, but of course with ebay you can score a pair for far less.
Have you ever bought a boot on ebay? I have the site to thank for my favorite Fryes and see an ebayed Weitzman in my future at some point. What's been your experience?
