If there's one thing I splurge on it's a good pair of boots for winter. I always buy my boots from Vagabond, as it's just an absolute superior brand in my opinion. The quality and fit is amazing and a pair of boots from vagabond can last for years - my last pair of boots from them lasted for three years. They are a little bit expensive, but I think it's worth it.
I waited for quite some time to see if they would go on sale, which they didn't and I ended up getting them with a discount code, so I paid a 100 DKK less than what they usually cost. I paid 699 DKK for them, which is still a great amount of money when you're a student. I can recommend you to research different websites, as Vagabond shoes often get discounted.
I chose this classic black boot, which stops at my ankle. The model is called Code and there are quite a few of Vagabond's shoes which are called Code, so you might have to search a bit. They're made out of 100% leather, which I know can be a bit controversial, so if you're against leather being used for shoes, these are not for you. The heal is 2,5 cm, so they don't make me a lot taller.
I got mine in a size 38 (UK: 5), which are a bit too big on my feet if a wear thin socks. The thing is I have a quite broad foot, so even though a size 37/4 fits the length of my foot better, the rest of the shoe will squeeze my feet. I decided to go for the 38, as I can wear thick socks in them. But I would say Vagabond's sizing of shoes are quite normal.
So that was my thoughts on my brand new boots. I really like them and I think they make any outfit look really sleek and polished. I love wearing them with skinny jeans and even with dresses. I hope you guys are having a wonderful day!
