Hands down, my legs are still my best feature. This is a large part of why my sock collection needs its own zip code.

I can't so much wear skirts- maybe knee length and flowy, of which I own one, maybe, somewhere? because of my job, so I switched to socks + capris. This looks a bit more "deranged hippie science teacher (hi mom!)" than punk, perhaps, but a girl's gotta do something with her socks, right? And there's theoretical acquisition of black cutoff BDUs as a badass capri stand-in.

The bigger problem is that my creaky old ass cannot sustain anything but sensible shoes.

Converse: only semi-sensible, if I buy them big enough to fit arch supports.
Combat boots: Sensible, but not in winter, because mine are jungle boots.
Docs: Sensible as long as I'm not walking any distance whatsoever (anything over 1/2 mile gives me blisters the size of silver dollars.)

I'm looking at these boots as a possible solution, but jeez. For $100 I have to be damn sure that they will fit AND look completely badass with at least 75% of my outfits. The other option is another pair of Docs, but one size larger so I can stuff in all sorts of gel pads.

Anybody got brilliant solutions?
