Spring Boots by Meermin

It always makes me curious why people will pack away their “winter attire” come Spring/Summer. I guess it makes sense if you live in a place that is +30 C (+80F) for 5-6 months long but when you live in a city that has moderate to terrible weather, as I always have, it does not make sense. That being, I have never packed my boots away and don’t think it makes sense to anyway. Just because the sun is out does not mean that we should only wear loafers. That’s silly to me. A pair of nice, tan boots such as these Meermin’s would look great on a nice summer day underneath a pair of jeans. Why wouldn’t they? As long as something is fully leather lined, your feet will breath and after all, your feet are going to sweat just as much in those loafers anyway! So, don’t follow the silly rules of packing your boots away come Spring, instead get a pair of boots that you can wear when you are bored of your “summer” shoes!

    I pack away my winter attire because I don’t have enough wardrobe space to keep everything out at once. I simply can’t have my winter overcoats and my summer suits / jackets all hanging up at the same time – they just won’t fit on the rails. (Whether this is due to a shortage of space or an excess of clothes is a matter of some debate.) And even here in Edinburgh, the chances of my needing a heavy tweed overcoat between now and October are pretty slim…

      Dunc – either buy a bigger house or take a real look at what you really wear during the summer and winter – I doubt you are like a woman – LOL. Get a life.

        That’s a rather boorish comment. You may wish to consider taking your own advice.

      that makes sense, my wife does the same. I don’t because in the relationship I am the woman with my clothes (especially my shoes) everywhere!

    No sign of these great looking boots on the Meermin website.
    Am I missing something?
    Special order maybe?

    Terrific boots. I have to admit that I pack my tall boots away for summer – save for one pair of AE Bayfields that go hiking and camping and a pair of tan Bonafe Derby boots. But in the winter and fall I’m in boots more often than shoes by a good margin.

      I am in boots all winter long!

    yes, I can understand those extremely hot places are hard to wear boots in…
