Boots are made for walking/riding BBBC #9 challenge fave shoes!

Today's BBBC challenge is favourite shoes. Well this is right up my alley because I am a shoe diva! I have two very favourite shoes and couldn't decide because one is function and purpose built, the other is funky and my everyday go to boot. 

Its pretty much a given that motorcycle boots are going to be my cinderella slipper of choice. I took the plunge and bought these Lady Daytona Pilots last August. They are amazing! They give me height, they are extremely comfortable both on and off the bike, so comfortable in fact that I can wear them teaching for 5 hours schlepping across the tarmac after students. Bonus is that they are Goretex which is awesome when you live in a rainy climate. There was also no painful break-in, they fit like a glove!

This is my boot of choice and is my favourite shoe! These are my classic burgundy rub Blundstones. I actually incorporated a bit of spring into the pic, I came across some wildsnowdrops. We are having amazing weather with above average temps. Since last August I have been dealing with a terrible heel issue and these boots solved that problem completely. So I am one very happy motorcycling shoe diva. 
Comfort rules my life, I gave up the stilettos a few years ago.

Comfort, it is for me, too. I love my sneakers, hiking boots and motorcycle boots, not to forget Crocs (thanks to Bobskoot).

I have thought of Blundstones on an off, but I just can't wrap my mind around the dual pull-tuggy thing-loops.

If I lived in Calgary, I'd surely buy a really cool set of cowboy boots and rock those everywhere (my how my wife would hate that).

Sonja - I live in my skechers sneakers and loafers quite a bit too, but Ihave to say the Blunnies have taken over my foot sole. I miss the pink croc guy!

David - I don't mind the tabs too much. I usually tuck them inside my boots after I've pulled them on. When I first got them getting the on and off was terrible, but now they have so loosened up and honestly almost 'cured' my plantar fasciitis I had in my left heel. I am now a convert and probably going to get a brown or black pair. As for cowboy boots, I had a pair once and loved them.

I love my Lady Pilots! I discovered them a few years ago. I'm going to have to give the Blundstones a good look; they do look comfy and I'm all about comfort when it comes to shoes. I still look longingly at a great pair of heels, but I have pretty much given them up. ��

Welcome to scooterpie land! I have never had a great pair of mc boots until the pilots came along, love em! As for the blunnies I am now addicted and will be growing my blunnie wardrobe.
