A well-made boot that fits you right is truly a thing of beauty that is a joy to wear. No matter what their purpose – from skiing boots to work boots – an excellent pair of boots just makes you feel grounded and supremely capable.

By contrast, a cheap or ill-fitting pair of boots is quite discouraging. You get what you pay for when it comes to foot gear. While it isn’t always true that the more you pay the better the quality, with boots it’s a simple fact. Cheap boots feel pitiful. In addition to a poor fit, they have the drawbacks of interior fabric that chafes, lace openings that bind, seams that fall apart. When manufacturers cut corners to save costs, you pay the price in discomfort.

My suggestion is to keep your collection of boots focused and superb. From fashion boots to snow boots, seek the perfect boot with the perfect fit, qualities, and look. Rather than owning a big pile of mediocre boots, find the best of each type of boot you need, and invest in that One Excellent Pair. In addition to making you feel good, this habit will save on closet space!

At one time or another, you’ve worn a pair of boots that just didn’t fit right. It could be that you paid quite a bit for them, or they looked really good with that special outfit, and you just were determined to break them in. Well, the fact is that if they didn’t feel good from day one, they never will. Which leads us to the first boot- buying rule: forget about ‘breaking them in.’ That tight squeeze over your instep, the pokey thing in the heel~ it isn’t going to go away. What happens is that you end up avoiding wearing the boots because they’re painful, and then you feel guilty about how much you paid for them.

The second boot-buying rule is to know what the boots are supposed to do for you; develop a list of criteria. Take hiking boots for example. There’s a great range in conditions for use. If you’re a day hiker you use a lighter weight and more flexible boot than a long-trek backpacker.

A good hiking boot will have these features at least:
a. Lace-hooks rather than lace holes. A minimum of two sets at the top enabling you to easily adjust the tightness for uphill and downhill.
b. Exterior material that is waterproof and very durable. The tongue should be pleated – attached all the way up to prevent leakage.
c. Smooth liner fabric that doesn’t attract seeds and is easy to clear.
d. Stiff sole with good traction pattern. Generally, the harder the material the sole is made from, the longer they will last.
e. Hiking boots will ‘pack-down’ a little, forming to your foot. However, if they rub or bind anywhere, don’t buy them. Sometimes you can try another pair in the exact same size and style and it will fit better. Ensure that your toes don’t touch the front at all, or all your treks down hill will be miserable. And, when you shop for hiking boots wear the thickness of the hiking socks you’ll use.

Now, make a similar list of criteria for whatever type of boot you’re buying: if you’re buying dress boots, work boots, or whatever. Do the dress boots need to have high heels or low, what color is most compatible with your wardrobe, will a zipper be better for you? Do the work boots need to be waterproof, have steel toes, should they be ankle high or mid-calf? Once you have the particulars in mind, you’ve invoked the law of attraction. Your clear expectation of features will help make the exact right boots much more likely to appear.
