Look for Less: Burberry Prorsum Boots

Burberry Prorsum, $895 & sold out last fall
Last year, Burberry's 2009 heeled combat boots were spotted on dozens of celebs and it girls. This season black combat boots have continued to rise in popularity as they're a semi-practical heel for colder days and a hot look!

Jeffrey Campbell, $175
Jeffrey Campbell got on this early with a dupli-CAUGHT version of the infamous Burberry boots for their fall 2009 collab with LF stores. They were called the "Poland" then. The shoes appear to have been re-issued as the "Boot Camp" and are available again online in a variety of colors at Solestruck.

Kelsi Dagger, $150
My personal favorite for this look is the Eva boot from Kelsi Dagger. I actually bought these for myself last week after Piperlime restocked in my size, and I wore them literally everyday last week. I got compliments on them at work, and outside the office a tranny asked me where I bought them. That's how you know you have a fierce pair of heels on, haha.

I love this pair from Kelsi Dagger because they're more practical for someone like me who walks everywhere and spends a lot of time on her feet. There's just enough platform and heel for the look without becoming too clunky. On Friday I started my day at 8AM and wore them all the way through work and two DJ sets, ending the day 19 hours later at 3AM. And while my feet were definitely exhausted, I don't think it would have been possible with some of my other shoes.

You can find these heels in black, brown and mushroom at Piperlime, Solestruck, Nasty Gal, Revolve and Moxsie.

I, too, had my eye on both the JCs and the Kelsi Daggers and I went with Kelsi Dagger! They are very comfortable and still give the "look" which is exactly what I wanted!

I'm in love with these shoes, but the 4" heel on the piperlime description scares the hell outta me. I'm no stranger to heels, but for those of us who usually turn to all-stars for every day wear, are they really comfortable enough for large amounts of walking?

oh wow, i didn't even realize the heels were 4 inches! there's a bit of a platform in the front, so it definitely doesn't feel that steep.

i'm always nervous about recommending heels because comfort is subjective, but i can say that this is the most comfortable pair of heels in my closet this season. i wore them literally everyday last week and i walk almost everywhere. i think the combination of platform and rubber sole really helps.

piperlime has free shipping & returns, so maybe you can give them a try? good luck! let me know how they work out.
