A couple days ago my sister sent me a text, asking me to help her find a pair of “non-trendy brown boots.”  At first I thought this was going to be a challenge.   In my mind “non-trendy” meant old lady, but after visiting a couple of my favorite shoe websites, I soon realized that a non-trendy boot doesn’t have to lack in style, it just needs to be reliable and something that can be worn to death!

Top Row: Luca Valentini, Bandolino, ESSEutESSE

Middle Row: Indigo by Clarks, MIA, La Soffitta di Gilda

Bottom Row: Pour la Victoire, Apepazza, Born

While searching for the perfect brown boot, I decided to stay away from websites like Aldo and Urban Outfitters (those are my go-to sites for a real trendy shoe), and visit sites like Zappos and Yoox, where they have tons of options and sales!

Keeping my sisters style and comfort in mind, I found boots that were durable, not too high (so she’s able to wear them all day), can be worn with both her skinny jeans and wide leg pants and most importantly, affordable (they’re all under $200).

Now that I’ve done my job, we’ll have to see if I did my job well!
