URGENT NEED OF BOOTS

Well, I fail at updating this. Other websites and school keep me busy, and I just have no gothy things to write about. "Color goth" just looks normal if you can't afford to dress like Emilie Autumn. At least none of my new friends ever look confused when I say I'm a color goth, they say it suits me :D.

Anyway. I currently have a pair of extremely crappy combat boots. $30 from walmart, so I wan't expecting the greatest thing. They are soooo comfortable but they are literally falling apart, and I've had them for under 2 months.

Something I would LOVE is

but... $120?!?! Budget-goth, please!

I'll be allowed to spend a bit more on boots than average old shoes, because a good pair of combat boots can work for 3 of the seasons, are comfortable and practical. I need something to walk around school in, will not get ruined when I have to kick my locker each time I open it, and will be able to walk in the snow.

Now... Where can I find a practical, plain (or with little design) FLAT combat boots? (I don't mean totally flat, but platforms? No thanks.)

Any help?

Well, if you don't feel too strongly about Hot Topic, they have some decent flat boots online. In fact I own these and they have lasted for three years. Other than that, sometimes you just have to search the internet for awhile...or get lucky at a store (thrift or otherwise).

I had a pair of the boots mentioned above once. They were nice, lasted a year for me, which at the time was a big accomplishment shoe-wise. I usually like Goodgoth.com's boot selection. Heres a link to a picture of my current boots: http://www.goodgoth.com/wpimages/wpcb481492_05_06.jpg

I'm kinda lucky bootwise...I have reeeaaaaaallllly wide feet (with: I ) so my mum normally buys me doc martins ect. because they're the only shoes that fit me

er...i know how you feel. i wanted combat boots too, but the only boots i could find were around 100 dollars, and were online. then i went to a military supply store in taiwan, and bought a really nice pair for around 36 dollars. i've worn them for a year now, and they're in pretty good condition, if a bit scuffed. i don't really know about the us...but maybe you can try to see if there are any military supply stores around your area?
