Prepares | Compass. Size 9.5. If you have 16″ calves like me, you may be partly relieved because generally, Mr. Fluevog doesn’t make knee high boots for our luscious legs. However, on that rare occasion when such a boot exists, I can’t help but want to IMMEDIATELY put it on my wish list. For fall 2017, my official gotta-have-it pick is the Compass. If you ever felt left out from grabbing a pair of Soprano | Hildegard, but didn’t feel too bad because they may not have been that comfy, then you’re in trouble. Compass is the Hildegard perfected. A member of the Prepares family, you can likely trot in these babies (pending the break-in period) all day long. They’re attention grabbing and come in two colors: grey (pictured) and navy blue with gold grommets. That you can switch up the look by changing the ribbon gives you endless possibilities! It does come at a hefty price (which I highly doubt will ever go on sale), but these are definitely investment Vogs that will pay off in the end. (Personally, I’d rather purchase these knowing I’ll use them all the time, as opposed to two-three meh sale pairs that will get mild usage. Trust me on this!) My wish list is weak in the knees for these!
Fall has been out for a few months now. What’s on your wish list?!
for the love of vogs,
NB: In Fluevogs, I’m a women’s size 9. Depending on the fit and family, I size up or down from there. For example, in most Minis, I’m a size 8.5. In the Fellowships, I’m typically a size 9.5. However, I do have wide, flat feet and Morton’s Toe, which makes sizing a little strange for me. Admittedly, these days, I like a little more wiggle room in the toes and I don’t like to bother with extra stretching. Therefore, I’ve been sizing up in my more recent purchases.
