If it ain't broke, don't fix it? Shoe poll.

Background: I cannot find a new boot style I like.
I believe I would wear the pair I consider "not broken" every single day of the week, if they matched my entire wardrobe, but alas they don't. So I'm wondering how often people buy the same shoe in different colors, or over again (as in the exact same shoe).

I kinda really want to buy the same boot in a different color (to compliment more of my wardrobe.) What does the internet think?

Re: If it ain't broke, don't fix it? Shoe poll.

  • No, because I like a variety of shoes.  I have several different colors of knee-high, slouchy boots, but the styles are different enough for me to feel like I'm varying it up.


    On the other hand, I do own the same Target cardigan in 5 different colors.
  • If you like the boots, and can't find others that you like, go ahead and order them in a different color.  It's better than ordering a style you don't really like, because you probably wouldn't wear them as much then.

    ha I definitely have clothes that are the same, just different colors. Something about buying the same shoes in a different color makes me hesitate. I have searched high and low for another boot and nothing does it for me.

    Yea that's the thing, if I only sorta like them... they may just end up sitting in my closet.
  • I would get the same style shoe in a different color.  Especially if I liked the design.

  • I definitely buy the same shoes over and over again.  Comfort is important to me, but so is looking cute, so when I find something that works I usually stick with it! 

    I say go for it.  
  • BUY ALL THE SHOES!!

    And I'm so so so glad I'm not the only one who buys the same thing in different colors. I feel so awkward doing that. Like the 50 yr old secretary and my 55 yr old bossman will notice that I own the same sweater in two different colors.

    I feel like that is where I am at. I bought these: <u><a href="http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=372272032&tid=plggpb1r&kwid=1&ap=7&sem=true&pcrid=25250483370" rel="nofollow">Shiza</a>!</u> but I am returning them.
    And these are the ones I want: <a href="http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=803377002&tid=plggpb1r&kwid=1&ap=7&sem=true&pcrid=25250483370" rel="nofollow"><u>Intyce</u> </a>in black.
