This was another one of those cases where I saw these boots for sale at VENT and didn't buy them, but the more I saw them on other people/shop staff, the more I wanted them and by that time it was too late lol. (I think these boots are currently listed in the Outlet Shop but last I checked they were sold out.) These are from...2 years ago I think? Last season's version of this boot has a wedge heel, but I prefer this chunkier one. Berri said, and I agreed, that it kind of looks like a Liz Lisa version of the Jeffrey Campbell Lita. It also came in a dark brown, but I was happy to get this in the beige color because of what I plan to wear them with, and lucky me, Berri was willing to sell hers - brand new with tags in box. (There are creases in the boots but that's because I was so eager to wear them that I wore them out the very next day I received them and didn't wait to take pictures. So this is what they look like after one use lol)
I had heard that these boots were super comfy despite the height and that's absolutely true! One of the shoes rubs a little on one of my big toes but it just requires a little breaking in and won't bother me after a few uses. I can definitely see myself traveling with these and they're great for most kinds of weather. My other rain-weather-suitable ankle boots don't have heels and the other knee-high/OTK boots are less than ideal to wear in 80 degree weather, so I anticipate being able to create a variety of different outfits at any time of year.
Here are a few coordinates that I quickly threw together. (Again, sorry about the quality and the lighting. Had to use artificial light since there wasn't any sun.)

Idk why, but I feel like my legs/body looks short in these boots in these photos. But they definitely don't look short in real life though because the heel adds a lot of height...
Anyway, I look forward to making better/real coordinates with these boots in the future! I think they'll be my go-to boot for rainy Hawaii weather which tends to only last a short while and sometimes the temperature is still in the high 70s.
Please check out MissBaci's Secondhand Shop. She no longer has these boots (since I bought them) but she does have other Liz Lisa + other brand items!
You might also be interested in Apfel-Birne's storenvy and Mint Kismet's Closet and MK Commodities.
All run by friends I trust to sell authentic items (unless replica is specified).
Oh, and my storenvy [Emiiichan Shop], of course! I have a number of Liz Lisa/VENT items that need to go to good homes because they aren't well suited to me. Many of the items are only tried on/new with tags, and I'm willing to negotiate for most.
