i got: Ash Lenny Boot

Ash ‘Lenny’ Boot

Ash 'Lenny' Boot

My pair of dependable black heeled boots failed in November sometime. The heel started to bend in the opposite direction and walking was not fun. It was time to replace them. They had a good run, almost 2 years I think. I wore the hell out of them too.

The decision to get the Ash ‘Lenny’ Boot wasn’t a straight path. I first bought a pair of boots from B2, they weren’t perfect but they worked. Then in the same weekend I saw the Ash ones at Holt Renfrew. It was friends and family weekend too and I had 25% off. So, I bought the Ash boots, which ended up being cheaper than the ones from B2. I returned the other boots to B2 when I returned to work on Monday. I should have looked at Holt’s first for boots; they do have some mid range boots that aren’t ridiculously expensive.

  1. those boots look great! i was looking for a pair of black dressy but practical boots a couple weeks ago. i have to admit that i was pretty picky, considering i made my mom go all over the place with me to find just the right pair! i think i went to eaton centre twice, then queen st west and back to eaton centre. finally, landing at yorkdale!

    my first place to look would be browns and b2. they have a great selection and a wide range of prices. i really like cSquare on queen st west but their prices are like 30% more than most places. i ended up finding a great pair of colcci black buttoned boots at little burgandy. i almost settled for the grey ones, but decided that black would be more practical. and i had to go all the way to yorkdale to get the right colour and size. but totally worth it! not too dressy…the heel is not too high…very comfortable!

    here’s a pic of the grey ones…
