I spent the better part of last fall searching for the perfect lace-up boots after seeing Jane’s gorgeous peep-toe Prada’s on Sea of Shoes. Unfortunately, a pair of boots that cost almost as much as my monthly mortgage payment are not in the ol’ budget at the Lennox house, and finding a worthy substitute that was both high quality and affordable proved to be much more difficult than I expected. {As a self-proclaimed bargain shopper expert, these kinds of failings are tough to swallow.}

Just as I’d resolved to the fact I’d spend another fall sans dreamy lace-ups, I found these adorable Colby boots from MIA Shoes. When they arrived a couple of weeks ago, I left them out on the kitchen table so I could marvel at their cuteness. And as soon as the temps fell below 70, I took them out for a spin…

To the shop. Which is risky business, because many a shoe has failed the all-day test. In fact, I keep a pair of flats in my bag for those days I’m feeling cocky and put on a pair of 4 inch wedges because my outfit just looks so much cuter, and I’ll be fine — {cut to 2 hours later and I’m in my Emmies}.

But Colby passed with flying colors! Through running around the shop, stocking new inventory in the boutique, and spending the afternoon making deliveries. All the way through to a surprise birthday party that evening. More than 14 hours without a single blister, sore ankle, or achy arch. The soft rubber wedge makes these boots super comfy, almost like a high-top sneaker.

This month, MIA Shoes is donating 10% off sales to Susan G. Komen for the Cure (a cause very close to my family’s heart as my MIL is a breast cancer survivor) when you enter “cure” at check out!
