I can't wear these to work (office is business dress, these are way too casual). It snows here a lot in winter, so I can only wear non-snow boots like these from now until mid-December and then possibly from early April to mid-May, when everyone stops wearing boots. So, limited use. They are about half again as expensive as any not-for-work shoes I'd ever buy, and my budget is rather limited right now, and I need to buy the kid two pairs of shoes ASAP. I can't find these anywhere but Zappos, so I'm unable to shop around for a decent deal, and you know how Zappos doesn't have meaningful sales anywhere and even when they do, my size (8.5) is already gone.
I LOVE THEM.
Buy them or don't buy them?
