I'm currently on the hunt-I've found a few places but the white is hard to find and i want a white and a black pair in another style. I'm trying to find out if one of my coworkers is going to NYC to see her BF and if she is I'm getting her to bring them back for me!!!

doc martens actually has some cool (super comfy!) boots out now. i got a pair last year, round toe, zip up the side, and they're leather. the only thing i don't like about them is that they're not as snug as i'd like them to be against my calf. this season the styles are even better.

check out their site : http://www.drmartens.com/ especially the jenna high leg boot. the dana high leg/pirate's cute too.

and they'll last forever.
the jennas are SO cute!!!

naturally, they don't sell them in canada.

Yup what deevah said.

I wear mine with skinny jeans, short skirts/dresses with either bare legs or tights or leggings.

I guess this is why I can't see the appeal of ankle boots...I can't pull off any of the above!

Trove on Bloor has merged with its sister store that was formerly across the street (shoon) and they have some kickass fall boots. a bit out of my budget ATM though.

Sarah, where exactly? Bloor and ?

I remember you talking about in previous threads.

I drove by that place on Sunday on my way for sushi and remember getting good shoe-vibes from there-perhaps its worth a try before I go to great legnths to have boots delivered from the US...but I think that I know what I want and there probably isn't any point...I'm so stinking picky!!!

I had it done to a pair of boots I bought thinking they would 'stretch' - they didn't.

Unfortunately the only place i had it done was in london ont, and I haven't had it done to any boots since.

I *think* it was 30-40 bones, though it could have been cheaper.

I would suggest going to that place underneath Nike in Yorkville - it's tucked into a corner - look for the sign that says 'shoe repair'.
Peeps @ Holt's said they're the best.

I totally can't remember the name.

Or you could try Specialty* on Yonge!

*can't remember if this is the right name either.

i remember a few years ago a friend of mine bought a pair of sandals from aldo and wore them for almost a year b4 they fell apart, she took them back to aldo and they gave her a credit to buy a new pair.
not sure if they still have such a lenient 'return' policy but it would be worth looking into, especially if your boots only lasted 3 months. definitely see how far complaining will get you!
yeah, i went in and told them the situation, but i didn't have the boots with me, and they said they couldn't do anything as 3 months had passed since the purchase date (i was procrastinating...think i went in 4 months later). anyways, now it's been a year since i bought them and i didn't think they would do anything at this point in time, however if your friend went after a year, maybe i can get something out of them? otherwise i was going to take them to novelty to get the shoe man to fix them. they're at work, so maybe i'll bring them to aldo tomorrow. :)

i think these are SO GROSS but at the same time, i kind of like them. :eek: but i am not sure if i do really like them cos i think they're ugly at the same time!!!

nat, you can have a shoemaker take in the boot so it fits more snugly; it's a pretty common thing to do and shouldn't be *that* expensive either (well, not sure about how much such things cost in zee UK). :)
thanks sabina! :) i'll try that.
