I spent the greater part of my life in Florida, so you can image why I am not a huge fan of cold weather. The one saving grace of frigid temperatures is the necessity of boots. Cold weather is an excuse for an expanding boot selection and I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of flat black mid-calf boots.

I refuse to by boots online because they never end up fitting right, and I’ve yet to find the perfect pair in-store. So, I thought I’d pick out a few favorites in hopes of finding them in a store on Black Friday. GASP, yes, I am one of those crazies who shops on Black Friday.

Here is my black boot roundup:

1) Nine West Bleaker ($83.30) |  2) Pink and Pepper Rev ($59.99) | 3) Mossimo Kamara Engineer Boot ($34.99) | 4) Frye Carson Tab Short Bootie ($328) 5) Bucco Vina Ankle Boots ($69.99) 6) DV By Dolce Vita Zip Short Motorcycle Boots ($149)

My favorite pair is the Dolce Vita motorcycle boot, but the Mossimo pair from Target looks pretty promising for $34.99. I’ll have to inspect that pair in person to make sure they are good quality. Of course, I love the Frye boots as well, but I’m not wiling to spend more than $300 on a pair of boots that won’t necessarily be a staple in my wardrobe.

A few of these pairs are on sale, which is tempting, but I think I’ll try my luck next week, in-store to make sure they’re the perfect fit. Black Friday, here I come!
