Ah, here I am boring everyone with my questions again

These boots looked incredible on this woman who I was sitting with on the bus returning home from a long day at work..........oh yeah well here goes:

They were leather and knee high with a side zip, the front of the shoe part was squareish but the heel is the curious feature. A usual boot has a sole, a "space" where the sole slopes upwards away from the ground, and then the heel after that. These boots had a solid heel, all the way from the front of the boot, arching right to the back.

The back of the heel would have been about 3 3/4 to 4 inches in height where-as the front was a very thin slice of heel.

These boots were really something and she looked terrific but I was litterally to stunned speachless to say anything!

Ah well, thats what happens when you are too shy for your own good like me

So, does anyone have an idea what kind of boots Im talking about here? Ive been browsing such footwear stores we have here in England such as Schuh, Next, Barratts and a handfull of others but havent really found anything that close.

Any ideas?

Eh typical, I missed one. This is not the best picture in the world but it shows the kind of heel I mean. These boots are no-where near as classy as the ones I saw!

Very interesting boots Sugo

I would have thought since the heel was solid, would it not be heavy towards the back of the foot?

Just curious.
