My New Boots

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a new love.

La Canadienne Pierre Boots.
                                               Source

I've had my eye on these for awhile and decided to buy them as a birthday gift to myself.  Being a boots girl, the Pierres won out over the Manolos. 

These boots are leather, waterproof and made in Canada.  Ironically, I bought them from Nordstrom US online.  Yep.  Go figure.  (And I paid that damn duty charge!!  But let's not discuss that.)  

The boots arrived last Tuesday, and I've worn them to work every day since.  I love.

                                    oops, should've dusted the mirror!

These boots have my musts: 

1.  stylish.
2.  warm for winter.
3.  high quality construction.
4.  fit like a glove (no end of the day pain).
5.  the heel height is just right.
6.  the boot calves fit pretty well and don't sag!!
7.  the boots stand upright and don't flop over the second you take them off.
8.  the soles grip wonderfully on the snow and ice (this week was particularly brutal for weather!)

These boots are in charge.



Here's the La Canadienne website.   A nice selection of boots indeed.

Do you have a favorite pair of boots?

    1. Exactly - I am really a boots girl and I like other brands too (Frye, Aquatalia and I want to get a pair of Hunters too.)

  4. LR they are amazing! I have 4 pairs of boots from La Canadienne and they are all my favourites. They cannot be beat.
    I have two pairs of the shearling boots, I wore a pair today out hiking, it was -15 and my toes were not a bit cold.
    Congrats on your first pair, there's no going back now! ;)

    1. Absolutely - no going back now! I was very impressed after I tried them on and walked the catwalk in my living room. Hubs likes them too.

  5. I have admired these La Canadienne boots on Dani BP! Yours are gorgeous, what a great choice - I bet you have them for years to come. I love my boots, my faves are a pair I bought in Budapest a couple of years ago and a smart little Ralph Lauren pair.I am loving your hair!

    1. Me too - I've admired Dani's boots for months now and we all trust her opinion. Isn't that the truth though - once we find a pair or a few pairs of boots we like - that's it, we're loyal!

      Thanks Sulky - my hair is looking fiercely red today!

  6. They look terrific. I love La Canadienne quality. I'll check out the Nordstrom website for them.
    Gotta love when others do my shopping for me :-)

    1. Exactly Jennifer - bloggers and pinterest people are the best, otherwise I wouldn't have known or taken a chance on these boots or other recommended brands!

      I was lucky with these boots, Nordstrom had my size for awhile, but I hemmed and hawed and left the boots in my cart and didn't buy them. Then I went back on the site a week or two later, and they didn't have my size! I freaked out a little, blamed myself for stalling and thought oh it wasn't meant to be. Then around New Year's, I checked the site out AGAIN, and lo and behold, my size was back online. I made no mistake that time, I bought them immediately! I love Nordie's!

  10. I absolutely love them, and they look beautiful on you! I own 4 pair of La Canadienne boots myself, and wear them all winter long. I was actually just telling my husband the other night how incredibly comfortable they are, too. Congratulations on getting your pair! I know they will become your favorites! :)

    1. Absolutely - and the fact the boots are made in Canada was a win-win for me....I'm all about the win-win!

  12. Yep, I love my plain brown flat boots from Office. They are maybe 7 years old and (with a new sole) still going strong. Second favorite are new wellies (matt blue) for walking on the beach!

  13. Great boots! I love the look. Very classy.

    (About the duty charge: Hey..the US is broke so we are stealing it from the Canadians. Lock your doors up there!)

  14. Great boots and I may be checking out this brand as well. I have put off getting new boots (for snow/winter) for a couple of years. I really like the look of these. Thank you for sharing!

  15. New to your blog, and this was the first post I read. Bought the boots immediately as we're going to Europe in a few weeks. They're perfect, and yes, we all trust Dani.
