Shoe Wants vs. Shoe Needs

Shoeaholics Anonymous Disclosure

CLbyChineseLaun. Women's Filene. Item No. 69949,70156

We all know that need is to come before want, and in most cases for me it works that way. However these Chinese Laundry Filene mid-high boots would fall under the WANT. I found them  at Famous Footwear and had to try them on. I’ve thought about them several times trying to justify that  I NEED them. The buckle and criss-cross straps  really dress them up. I’m pretty sure the $10 off $50 coupon plus their current Famous 1/2 price sale just  may be the ticket to turning them into a NEED.   They are on sale  online as well at, $59.99.

  • Chippewa Boots
    You painted your car yellow and pink plaid in high school. When everyone else was getting mullets in the '80s, you wore a teased and sprayed pony tail shooting out of the top of your head like a firework. It's safe to say you don't usually settle for ordinary. So why should your work boots be ordinary? Get way outside of ordinary in these all-in-one Chippewa Men's 55176 Black Waterproof Composite Toe Boots. Far from ordinary, these Chippewa boots are loaded with comfort and safety features to give you a great work day. Made with black, oiled leather, the six-inch uppers deliver waterproof protection. They've been seam-sealed to give you superior waterproofing. Moisture is wicked away from the insides of the men's boots as well, thanks to Dri-Lex aerospace lining. This is breathable, and pairs well with the soft Flexwelt insoles that cradle your feet and keep you comfy and supported. For additional reinforcement, the leather boots have fiberglass shanks to assist your arches. Non-tarnishable hooks and eyelets finish off the hardware department nicely, and the heavy duty nylon laces let you tie up this work footwear in a jiffy. The black rubber outsoles of the safety toe boots deliver lightweight traction. ASTM-approved composite toes guard the tops of your feet against rolling or falling hazards on the work floor. You'll also get added protection from the electrical hazard rating, which keeps you safe around charged equipment. The lace-up design lets you customize the fit of your EH boots and secure them into place. Why settle for ordinary when you can have the all-in-one power of Chippewa Men's 55176 Black Composite Toe Waterproof Boots? Manufactured Sizes: M 6-12, 13, 14 I EW 6-12, 13, 14
