American Duchess Tavistocks

Recently, the amazing American Duchess historical shoe company had an "imperfects" sale, meaning every pair of shoes they inspected and found lacking their great standards was sold for a bit cheaper. They had several pairs of their new White Tavistock boots for sale, so I snatched up a pair. They arrived yesterday!

I took one picture of the box, but then I got too excited to take any more pictures and just opened them. :) Thanks to my little sister for taking the pictures of them on me!

I was debating between getting a size 8.5 or a 9, because the width of my foot when measured was a 9, but the length was an 8. I decided on an 8.5 and I think I picked perfectly. The boots feel like they were made specifically for my foot, which is amazing, because usually my feet are very picky about which shoes they are comfortable in.

I almost didn't get the button hook, but I'm very glad I did. It makes them so much easier to get on and off.

The 2" French heel is a bit higher than I'm used to, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I adore French heels. :)

 I wore them last night for quite a few hours and am happy to report that they are some of the most comfy boots I have ever worn. Most fashion shoes tend to be uncomfortable if worn for more than a few hours.

I love my new boots and highly recommend American Duchess's shoes.
