*And don’t forget, my favorite, Ciao Bella boots from Bluefly.  Super comfortable, good quality.  I just bought my sixth pair in four years.  They’re all I wear in the cold winter months.

    Belle, is the Ciao Bella boot really only 14.5″ tall on the shaft?

      I don’t have a measuring tape, but mine come to 1″ below my knees.

      Maybe 2″, either way, they’re the same height as my other non-Ciao boots.

    6th pair in 4 years? Is that because you’re alternating them out in multiple colours? Otherwise that sounds like a really bad rate of replacement.

      I have every color. Each pair lasts about two years.
