Ebay Buy: Studded Boots

My stinky ugly-cool boots from the last week's sum up. Why are all the things I buy on Ebay lately so stinky? Is it because I like cheap products? Is it just the fake leather smell we all know, or something worse? I have no idea. Hopefully it's nothing harmful, 'cause that's what I like to think.
Studded Boots

They remind me of something the witches and wizards from Harry Potter would wear. I still can't decide if I really like them or don't like them at all. It doesn't matter. They are studded. Period.

As I said, these were purchased via Ebay. They come in black (like mine, not totally black but rather dark gray), light gray and brown and cost £9.99 (buy it now). I also payed £7.99 for shipping to Slovenia. For a total of £18, they're not bad at all.

Do you ever buy cheap shoes? And I mean ... not expensive shoes?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  4. I've bought some boots in New Look for 26$, claimed to be made of real leather (not really sure about that). They look almost like yours, thought they're slightly lighter and that gray leans towards greenish blue, and they don't have studs or zippers, just laces.) They're pretty good )

  5. I think they look great. If only they were blacker ... What size are you wearing (if you don't mind saying)?

    And yes, I love cheap shoes. I love expensive shoes, too. But I can't afford to have many expensive shoes, so I rather opt for having many cheap shoes xD

  6. Hmmm, tole o "smrdečih" čevljih me je spomnilo na članek, ki sem ga prebrala že dolgo nazaj... Če te zanima, si ga lahko prebereš tukaj:

    Da bo jasno, z njim se ne strinjam v celoti, ampak mi je pa vseeno dal misliti...
    Kako se temu izogniti? Verjetno se ne da, saj ne more nihče garantirati, da so drage stvari pa tudi "boljše". Ampak včasih pa pri kakšnih novih artiklih res zaznam tisti čuden vonj, ki ga ne znam nikamor umestiti. :-S Ah, ko gre za dodaten zaslužek......

  7. Še to - tvoji čevlji izgledajo super! Jaz bi jih kakšen dan zračila in potem z veseljem nosila. ;)

  8. I buy cheap shoes all the time! lol! I love army boots. I've had my proper army boots for 3 years now and they are pretty much falling apart. But yours look cooler...they have studs!!!

  9. Takšnih škornjev ponavadi v trgovini ne pogledam, ampak tile so pa prav luštni in dejstvo, da niso predragi jih naredi še boljše ;)

  11. Last years I am trying not to buy cheap shoes, because my feet alway feel pain if I am long in them. I just bought one pair of cheap flats in October, I need it them for work, I wore them 1 day, and I will never wear them again... as my feets were feeling pain many days after...
    And hate the buying process of shoes because I don't want to buy real leather (as I am vegetarian), but fake leather shoes are so not comfortable, so I have a huge debate in me, which to the people around me it seems to me stupid debate... so sometime I buy real leather, sometimes fake... I hope that one day there will be more good fake leather shoes.

  12. Me too I love studs and zippers, sometimes people calls me "Michael Jackson", lol, because of the massive amounts of black and metal gear I wear :D
    (but people are impressionable, I don't really wear all that metal!)

  13. Those are really cool boots. For something that is trendy I wouldn't spend a fortune on. Something you want to wear for a long time I'd buy the best I could afford.

  14. I LOVE them!! My kind of boots :)And yes, my favorite pair of boots right now cost me less than $10 USD..YAAY! for cheap shoes that we love(especially if they make us look sexy !)

  15. I had bought some makeup brushes sets at ebay (from Asia) and they all stink at start but after some time the smell vanished.
    keep yout boots out of the box for some days, if you can put it in a place outside to get some air (in a shadow place).

  16. @Sana: I'm wearing size 39 (sometimes 38), that's a UK size 6. At first I wanted them to look more black as well, but now I can see that stand out better this way.

    @Kvacka: Ravno včeraj sva se s sestro pogovarjali o isti zadevi, v reviji G pa sem brala o zdravju nevarnim kavbojkam. Veliko zadev je narejenih na Kitajskem in v bistvu ni nobenega zagotovila, da so izdelki varni... ne glede na ceno. Verjamem pa, da so cenejši izdelki potencialno bolj nevarni. Vse za denar. Sicer pa: škornji so bili poslani iz UK in lahko samo upam, da imajo kakšne zakone v povezavi s strupenimi snovmi. Sledi zračenje, zračenje in še enkrat zračenje. =)

    @Neja: Nogo prerišeš na list papirja, izmeriš dolžino in pogledaš v tabelo (shoe size), potem pa samo pretvoriš v številko, ki jo uporabljajo v drugih državah. Zaenkrat so mi bili še vsi čevlji kupljeni preko interneta prav. =)

    @B.: Yeah, I know it can get hard for the vegans - leather shoes are better for you, but not for animals. I hope there will be better fake leather shoes in the future as well.

    @Nadia: Thanks for the tip. I'm gonna 'air' the hell out of them. =)

  17. I've bought a lot of cheap shoes. In fact pretty much all of my shoes were relatively cheap since I don't like spending a lot of money for something I'll wear out in a year :P I think the only shoes I would be willing to pay more for are the ones I work out in.

    I got the nail polish in the mail yesterday :) Thanks again!

  18. Zakon so! :) Moja politika pri čevljih je - veliko denarja za športne čevlje, za vse ostalo pa čim manj, itak jih slej ko prej uničim, znosim, se jih naveličam, ali pa grejo preprosto iz mode in mi je totalno brezveze 'investirati' v "moderne" čevlje...
