Kristin writes, "Hi Outblush, I've decided I need to grow up and and stop wearing tennis shoes everywhere. I figured cute boots for winter that will last would be a good start. I tried on these at a store this weekend and fell in love with the style and how they fit. A shorter, clunkier heel that still looks cute. The only problem is that the calf is not wide enough for me to wear with jeans. I seem to run in that problem with almost all boots unless they are the ugg style. Do you have boots or brands that are wider at the top so I can wear a pair of skinny jeans underneath them? I'd be willing to go up to $200 for a pair that I will be able to wear through multiple seasons. Thanks! Kristin"
