Bad A**
But with chafing and possibly blisters, if you're not careful. These boots are made for walking, though they are a little loose on me (ordered 6, true size 5.5) and caused some chafing. The left foot was relatively unscathed, though some minor chafing did occur later. The right food suffered an Achille's tendon breakdown where at the end of a 5 block walk, I was almost hobbled. Luckily, I always carry a Band-Aid anti-blister stick, neosporin, and "tough" flexible Band-Aids, so I was able to tend to the wound before it escalated into something ugly. For this issue, minus a star. Otherwise, once broken in, they will be super fantastic and versatile. As a low brow marriage between Frye engineer boots and Westwood bondage boots, they are somewhat unstructured, so the front "tongue" of the boot may flop open a little. Just punch some more holes in the wrap around strap, and you'll be good. I'll probably wear these into the ground. I hope JC keeps them in rotation 4ever.

Luxury Leggings
These are the most expensive leggings I've ever purchased/owned. That being said, you're getting what you pay for. The quality of wool is superb--thick, soft, and warm. I also love the "space invaders" like design. So nice, I had to buy them twice.

Mars Attacks
I purchased these booties to serve as a chic transitional shoe. The construction appears solid and I expected them to be instantly wearable, with a walking commute in mind. Uh, not really. While they're cute and well made, they are also truly true to size. My real foot size is a 5.5, but most of the time, 5.5 is not offered, so I go with 6, without any issue. I went with 6 on these shoes and my foot slipped around, not enough that the shoe would go flying when I do a high kick, but you get the idea. So, I made sure to wear socks. Then I walked about 10 blocks--5 from my apt to subway, then 5 more from subway to work--looking so cute. Except, by the time I arrived at work, I was beginning to hobble. The balls of my feet burned. I knew there was damage. I had to change into flats for the rest of the day. So suffice it to say, these will require breaking in. If 5.5 had been available, I would've gotten them; I thought 6 would work, and it still might, but you've been warned.
