Dreaming of Steampunk Boots

It’s almost fall, which means I can’t stop looking at boots on Zappos. A year ago, I had trouble finding affordable steampunkesque boots I liked. This season, there are so many, they might as well start steampunk.zappos.com. There are also a lot of flats if your costume vision includes a lot of walking. Here are my favorites:

Madden Girl Zhesty, comes in black, cognac, or grey. $69.95.


——————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Not Rated Official, comes in black, grey, and tan. $63. (These also come in a shorter version called Spin.)


——————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Madden Girl Gemini, comes in brown and black. $69.95.


——————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Promiscuous Pilar, which it says comes only in grey, but the pictures look quite brown to me. One of the comments mentions having ordered the (apparently previously available) brown and that they looked grey. $71.20.


——————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Madden Girl Devotid, this color only and only available in sizes 7 and 7.5. $53.96.


——————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Yellow Box Andie, comes in brown and black. $54.


——————————————————————————————————————————————————-
If, on the other hand, you’ve got an extra $1,100 lying around, may I recommend the Ralph Lauren Collection Safara? I’ve had my eye on this line for a while, as it has many lovely steampunk and non-steampunk choices. At the prices, however, I expect it to remain a one-sided love from afar.
