I wasn't planning to look seriously at boots [the Nouvelles fell into my lap] but I was browsing eBay and found these suckers.
Field Boots size 9- Perfect Condition! - eBay (item 170526684980 end time Aug-19-10 20:53:46 PDT)
There's no brand listed, but the marking on the side of the boot makes me think Devon Aire?
I have almost enough money for these by myself...and from the measurements I've taken they seem the right size!
I'm not sure about the height though. On the page it says 19" but I don't know if that's the inside of the boot, or all the way from the ground. When I measured the back of my leg from my heel to knee, I got 18". If these turn out to be Devon Aires [or another quality brand] then I'll have my mom ask them about the height, if no one here knows what it means.
OH - and how much would it cost to get zippers put on the back? At that time I could have the calf made a little smaller, too, right? When I measure my calf it's right around 14", maybe a smidge more.
