BeansTalk's Boots

BeansTalk's Boots

The window for boots in Los Angeles is pretty darn tiny.

In fact, just a few days ago, the temp clocked in at 81-degrees. Still, when it's cold, it's time to untether boots from shapers and sleepers. Here's what we wear.
COLE Haan Air Tantivy Over-the-Knee Boot Concealed Nike Air® technology for ultimate comfort. Tonal topstitching; almond toe Decorative equestrian inspired brass buckle on shaft Back stretch gore inset for a flexible fit Inside partial zipper. $398 original, now $199 on Amazon
Uggs, just because you have to. We have 'em short in natural, sneaker soled mid-cafe in red, mid-calf in umber, mid-calf in black, tall in brown, short in black.

STUART WEITZMAN Emphasis Black Suede Boot This boot, made of stretch suede has a trendy style that's form-fitting in a knee height design. The pointed toe and slim heel is a stylish feature while the pliant rubber sole offers stability. They don't make this style now, but there are very similar versions to be had. And get Stuart Weitzman's, because they are crazy comfortable for how sizzlin' they look.

EILEEN FISHER Brown Jaunt Boot Strata-style stitches grace a soft suede boot. Approx. heel height: 1". Approx. boot shaft height: 6". Suede upper/leather lining/leather and rubber sole. We actually have these in a slightly lighter color By Eileen Fisher; imported. Salon Shoes. Nordstrom, originally $260, now $109.

TARYN ROSE Stephalie We have these riding style boots in brown. They don't make them anymore, but there are similar versions.
COLE HAAN Air Whitley Tall Boot: A sleek and smooth hand-painted calfskin boot with stretch ultra-suede upper. Concealed NIKE AIR Technology Leather and fabric lined Fully padded leather sock lining Suede buffed sole with rubber forepart/ 1 1/4" stacked heel Although there is an elasticized leather panel, these boots fit very snuggly around the calves. They actually need to be stretched (for us). $327 to $158
