I had purchased a pair of joan of artic lace up wedge boots last fall and luved them. I was hoping that Sorel would put out some different styles this season and they have. the Addington line of boots are awesome, stylish and comfy all rolled into one. I chose the mules just because they would be easy to put on and take off while running around for a day. They are probably not everyone's idea of the most comfortable boot ever but for me I feel they worked out great after running errands for a few hours. They are just a great stylish boot that I am happy to have in my wardrobe. I know I will probably end up purchasing another pair of either the Addington lace up tall boot or the Lea wedge looks cute too! LUV, LUV, LUV!!
