It may still be Fall on the calendar but according to the temperature Winter is in full effect.  Unfortunately, my winter footwear in terms of boots has been lacking recently and I've been on the hunt for a decent pair of ankle boots other than the standard black pair I already own.  Yesterday I hit the jackpot.  I picked up these Polo Ralph Lauren chocolate brown, leather, ankle strap boots for less than tank of gas.  As you can tell these boots are sufficiently worn in with creases and distressed leather. Even better for me.  They feel and look good and heavy.  Strapping them on around my ankles provided immediate warmth and put a different hitch in my step with a good winter boot under a pair of dark ink jeans, gray wool topcoat, cashmere gloves and cotton scarf.  I hit them with a good shine and they look almost new.  Great winter boots I'll be wearing for years to come.
