  • it really depends on the outfit, and comfort-level. a more substantial shoe is always more comfortable, if you're going to be wearing them all day, or standing- of course, that always depends on the heel, too. if not, pointy-toed shoes/boots are prettier...and don't have the same effect to the eye as a square-toed shoe might. meaning, if your shoe is very square, it does nothing to 'slim' the leg..only looks bulky.

  • I totally agree w/ above post. I am deciding on knee boots but am a fan ot the pointy toe. I am afraid it may be on its way out of style so I opted for a semi-pointed toe by Ecco at Nordstrom. My friend in San Fran says to shop Marshalls and TJ Maxx as she found several pairs for cheap. Good luck!
