i haz bootses!
The UPS guy turned around and came back. I saw him come past the house and was standing at the front door waiting. ;-)

So. The Triumph boots come laced with ribbon. Pretty. Would be prettier if it was ruby red instead of black. Too short the way they're laced, though, and with my "pleasingly plump" calves in them. Luckily they also include regular laces, so I'm going to see how those work out.

The heels rub a wee bit, there isn't much arch support, and they look more like combat boots that I'd thought they would, but they're still in the running. The socks I'm wearing are kinda of worn, too, so thicker socks might help. They'll be easy to break in, though!

The Classics... I should have bought a color other than black. I'm so sick of plain black boots, and I never realized it. I think I'm going to send these back and get the pink flowered ones at a later date.

Okay, trying the Triumphs again, this time with proper laces. ...That feels better, but I think they could use an insole. Maybe I'll see if gel insoles will fit. I think these are the keepers; the plain black Classics just don't do anything for me, and Zappos doesn't have any in any interesting colors (except the flowered ones, which I don't want to buy yet).

(I'll edit this post with pictures later.)

I'm also a proponent of Docs and you will eventually not need an insole. The insides of Docs are designed to mold to your feet. (I believe Dr. Marten was an orthopedist or some such.)

And does Zappos still have the white boots with the laser etching of flowers? Because I totally intend to wear those at my wedding if I ever get married.

They're a little big, though; I need the insoles to take up space. I'm also kinda hoping that the gel will help alleviate the vibration I feel through the pegs, but the boots seem to do that pretty well on their own.
