Need Advice on Boots

  1. Hey guys, I need your help! I would like to get some staple black boots in my closet for this fall. I would like to get either the "bootie" or mid calf length but am at a loss and my price range is $200 - $500. I've looked at Prada and Via Spiga so far. I want them to have a pointy toe and be comfy (2 1/2-3" heel is ok). Prefer somewhat of a platform. For those of you who own Prada boots, how is the feel? I tried on some booties yesterday at Last Call and noticed that I generally had to go a 1/2 size up to 7 to fit into the shoe because of the shape..

    This is a boot that woudl get alot of use, so they need to stand up to that!
