Which color should I choose in these MJ boots?

Which color should I choose?

  • GREY GREY GREY! It's what you desired most, so this is it!

  • Be smart, go with Black. It's just as pretty and won't get dirty as easy.

Hey ladies!
I know I don't post here that often anymore, it's all for the money-saving, I promise! ;)

But now I plan on investing some good money in MBMJ booties that are everything I ever dreamed of: I love the color, the detail on the shaft, and the pyramid heel.



I initially wanted to go with the grey ones, since I always wished for grey boots. BUT this is suede, and considering it's gonna be fall/winter and wet and dirty outside (rain, snow…), I am not so sure if I'd be better off with the classic black ones. Even the heels are suede, and I don't want to spend all the cash on something that gets dirty real quick.

So…
should I go with the grey ones, my fave color?
or
should I be smart and pick the classy black ones and get more out of them for a longer time?

THANKS!

Oh and one more thing:
Do you think these will run true to size? Usually I have to go half a size up in MBMJ, but shopbop states these run TTS.

You know I have had fantastic luck treating my suede with water-proofer before wearing. I've worn my black suede uggs out in all weather without accruing salt stains. Get what you love and invest in some good silicone sealant!

I voted for grey! I don't live anywhere near snow, but I'm sure there are effective ways you can prevent damage - just like Spacey said. Also, the grey ones are so much better than the black, and I love my black - the lighter color makes the details more apparent, and they're so pretty!

I'd get those in gray and get a lesser-expensive brand of little black booties. You can find black ones all over, but those gray ones are unique.

Gray is the new black you know. LOL I would choose the gray. They just seem more special than black.

The black are more practical but as it's been pointed out, you'll be able to find a similar style in black somewhere else. Luxury is about going for what you love which is the grey!

I would definitely go with the grey -- I love that style and they look so much better in the grey. As for salt and snow, that will actually show up MORE on the black ones than grey - when salt dries and leaves marks on your boots/shoes, it's a lighter color, almost an ashen white/grey, so if that were to happen, it would be LESS obvious on the grey

But you should buy the UGGs water/weather proofing spray - it works wonderfully. I've got several pair of Uggs and none of them are heavily marked and/or stained from snow, water and/or salt. If you don't want to invest in the Uggs spray, you can always get some other brand of water/weather proofing spray -- most major shoe/leather companies make them (Wilsons and Kiwi to name a few)

Wow thanks everyone, that's been so helpful to push me over the edge towards the grey!:P
And good points you all made –*
I can get a cheaper black pair, what a great thought.
iluv, your input is smart as ever – I never thought about that, how true!

Now if only shopbop would carry my size half a size up (it's sold out right now) :Push:

oh and Dawn: I miss you too! :hugs:
I really plan on visiting more often when I'm able to be tempted again. :graucho:
