BTW, if anyones in NYC LR is having their sample sale starting tomorrow
Oh I so wanna go! I wonder if they will have the Matilde boots??? In a 5??
Let's hope it doesn't turn out like the Ferragamo sale. Smh.
They look great! Now I'm wanting another pair of matildes in olive!
Thanks Sneezz! I am glad they don't have my size!! I'm on a LR ban!
I wish!!! NYC always has the good sales!!
Here's a review of the LR sample sale:
LR's fb page says there will be an online sale soon
I'm a huge fan of Matilde's but didn't like the thinness of the bottom and the front bottom toe part wore very fast on mine with just a few wears.
I love the look..they just aren't for me sadly.
This is good to know, I have several pairs of LRs but no Matildes yet. Did you have to replace the sole or did you get a cobbler to do a rubber sole/Topy?
This would be awesome. I forward my LR Sample Sale emails to my friends in NYC, but they usually don't go because they don't love them like I do.
I didn't do anything with the ones I had.. I ended up selling them~ they were fairly new. I just knew if they were going to wear that easily..I didn't want to deal with it
The bottom is just thin and if I was going to have them again I would def. get a cobbler to add those little heel/toe savers..something like that
They are so cute though!
I had mine soled all the way from toe to the little heel area & my Matildes have lasted for years. I have them done in beige so that they blend in with the original leather bottom. You should get them again
Oooohhh! thanks for sharing! Can't wait for the online sale! Oh ya...forgot I put myself on a LR ban!
my mum and i are also fans of the Matilde. she has a black pair in dino leather and i have brown and black...love them!
as for the sole, best to resole them, they are so worth it!
Here's an article which might be helpful. I do think it is a good idea to wear your boots a few times before getting the protective soles put on.
Any black friday/cyber monday sales on LR? I know the website is currently having a fall sale
Wow, those looks so great! So jealous.... Do they tend to gather a bit around the ankle after wearing for a while?
I'm in the group! Just purchased 2 pairs of the LR Kiva Shearling booties on Shopbop for 30% off and NO shipping costs OR tax! When I get them in, I will send a modeling pic.
I think they'll be great for light snowy days in Manhattan and cold sunny days in Florida. A cool alternative to uggs.
