Blue Leather Cut Out Ankle Boots
Heel to Toe inside: seller only listed outside measurement
Ball: again, just outside (which is pointless)

very unusual original fun boots. not that practical, and the shipping is way too high, $15?? AND the seller has zero feedback. still, preeeeeeeeety.

Italian made, so they're probably fairly comfortable, even though that's a steep heel. the best part about this pair is the front is just as beautiful and flattering as the back, nice detail to have the surprise colorful turquoise heel in the back.

ORANGE! simple shape and no heel which is great contrast to let the color really stand out.

i would definitely buy these, but they're not my size. they look comfortable and very flattering. i like them so much that if they were too big i would still buy them (if no one else bid) and put a shitload of insoles in them.

Navy Suede Famolare Wedges

these are serious shoes. there are a lot of people on ebay who collect this brand and bid high. usually when i see Famolare shoes listed they're sporting that giant beige rubber wave heel. it doesn't look all attractive to me. but these are BLACK wedge heels with navy suede leather uppers. nice. i really like the look of mixing navy and black. either these shoes are tacky and clunky to you, or they're like wearing art.

Oxblood Leather Ankle Boot-esque Shoes With Fringe Detail

if no one bids on these, i might get them. the fact that the seller mentioned the soft leather really sold me. but they do kind of look like golf shoes stuck on a heel. mustache shoe.

Yellow Low Heel Pumps

one of the best hues of yellow leather i've seen on any ebay shoe in a while. the leather looks wrinkled/creased at the ball of the foot, but i think that just means it's nicely broken in.

Black Mid-Calf Boots
Heel to Toe inside: 10
Ball: 3.5

these boots look really good around the calf of the model. thing is, every photo is kind of the same, only side shots....so it leads me to believe the boots may look weird head-on or from behind for some reason. anyway, they look nice and simple (ugh, enough with the "pirate" to describe ANY BOOT, it's like the new "boho".) i've received shoes from this seller before, she has consistently good taste. (but she describes these boots as brown in one of the headers...i'm pretty sure it's black though)

Green Simple Pumps

these have a pleasing green hue and nice shape everywhere. they're simple, no bows or cutouts or embellishments and i think that works perfect with the lively green, there's no overdoing it, the color is enough. looks like the leather is frayed a bit or something though at the top (noticeable in the first side shot.) also, looks like they've almost never been worn. if that's ever the case, i sometimes question the comfort.

also from the seller of the green shoes, these have a great shape from head-on and the side. i think they all-around really flatter the foot. featured are nice sturdy heels that make it easier to walk in, more comfortable, but you're not sacrificing any elegance or femininity. the leather may be stiff, but i think the shoes are just too big for the seller...look at her tiny feet modeling the shoes in the second pic.

Beige Mid-Calf Boots With Faux Fur Insides

a feminine way to keep your feet warm in the winter months...thing is, you'll be slipping all over the ice and snow with those heel bottoms (unless you take them to the cobbler to have some traction soles put on.) one time i bought similar boots like this on ebay and the fluffy fur part was stinky and the fake leather outside started to crack and peel. these are in much better condition.....and aren't they better looking than a pair of Uggs? let's all take a moment to not think about Uggs and look at these original, sexy, warm boots.

-----------------------------------------------------

the seller, syn_x store, is having a $4.99 buy-it-now sale. (shipping is 9 bucks though....ghey) so, for $13.99 here are some good deals that you don't have to go through a bidding war...

these are name brand, nice wood heel, cute circular cutouts in the leather that would stand out more with black or colored tights underneath.

these are kind of weird and sweet. unfortunately, it's not leather so they're more likely to be uncomfortable and fall apart.

similar to the beige ones....but in another drab color.

i love how the label is called Natural Comfort by Celebrity. these have a nice red hue and breathing holes (i wouldn't call them cutouts). i think cutouts and peep toes are great though cos your feet sweat and it's gross for them not to air out. the seller says these shoes are from the 80s, but the brand name and metallic cursive writing on pink leather insole says late 50s/early 60s to me, but the low heel seems more modern.
Suede Black Lace up Boots with Thick Heel

the seller probably doesn't want these boots anymore cos it's a bitch to have to lace them up every time. also, the heel is somewhat ugly and too chunky from the side view. the good news, if you have fat calves you can wear tall boots again!

the heel may be too steep/uncomfortable, otherwise i have no idea why this woman is getting rid of these boots cos they're cool as fuck right now. the laces remind me of a gym though. on the bright side, it's name brand Charles Jourdan (usually a good sign of quality) and the wooden heel is beautifully shaped. the heel makes up for the sneaker laces.

Black Sequined Ankle Boots
Heel to Toe inside: have to ask seller. they only gave the outside length--i have NO IDEA why sellers do this (lazy) it doesn't help anyone.

these boots look like a cheap version of the ones Madonna tried to steal from Love Saves the Day in Desperately Seeking Susan (see below). I WANT THESE SO BAD. but i would not be able to walk on those wee little thin heels. also, i prefer the fit to be tighter on the leg/ankle and a bit taller like the boots in the movie.
