Buying Cheap Boots Does'nt make You Cheap...Maybe it Makes Us Wise

Towards the end of every summer I start thinking about cheap boots. Not my fault, the stores have been showcasing fall apparel since the middle of July.

Boots are "so must have's" for the latter part of the year. I reglious start the boot count down as of September. The process of locating where to find high-end boots at respectable prices.

These past few winters lead me to discover that cheap boots are not such a bad thing. Wait and read on before you make a judgement.

A boots price does not always tell the story of the boots worth. A boot should provide 3 major qualities:

  • fit
  • Comfort
  • Hold-up
  • No where does it state a boot has to be expensive in order to achieve these benefits. Its just "DESIGNER" boots are so much better...at least in our minds.

    If you can find boots that fit well, comfortable and hold-up the price should not be factor. Price reduce boots get a bad rap for if they cost so little how can they suitable?

    With the right amount of determination, time and research. You can find inexpensive boots that look good and will carry you through the season.

    What price point makes a boot cheap or price challenge?
    If the boot is to the knee anything under $50 is consider inexpensive.
    An ankle boot the cost effective price range is anything under $35.

    The over-the knee boot anything under $60.
    These prices are not exact, but they give you an idea of cost savings.

    What determines cheap boots pricing?
    Pricing is reflected against the materials of the boot. If you find a pair of leather knee high boot for under $50 you would have found an excellent price. The same boot made out of cloth should have a lower cost.

    What the boot is made-up typically is how the price is determine. This does exclude designer footwear, for their cost is based on other factors.

    Designer boots and shoes price point has factor in the branding, advertising, reputation and craftmanship. So even their discount boots can be costly. Brand name merchandise are associated with quality materials, artistic indifference and reputation. This leads to higher production cost and higher prices.

    Now, I know you all thinking, ok, great...yada yada... but
    "Where do I go to get cheap boots?"

    I can provide you a list of places on-line where to go and that is the quick fix.

    Wearing inexpensive boots does not make you cheap. Sometimes I prefer to wear something that isn't expensive.

    During bad weather, around the house or running errands. I don't need to wear my nicest boots. If anything happen to the boot I don't flip out.

    Cheap boots are a savings grace at times. They are sturdy enough for what I need, but the fact they cost so little I don't mind if they get messed-up.

    Besides some cheap boots are really cute. I have seen some that you could not tell that they cost under $50 and if you could it didn't matter.
