Ready for winter!

Hi folks, apology for not writing as regularly. As you probably know already, I just started a new job and I have been spending time adjusting. Hence, no time to write.... but hopefully it gets better.

 It is winter here in Sydney and it must have been the coldest winter ever. the temperature constantly drops below 10 and the amount of rain that we get is just unbelievable. I got sick twice over the period of 2 months which was crap. I am sick of being sick. I figure that the best solution to this must be to equip myself with better winter gear. So to start, I purchased this pair of boots from Tod's yesterday.

I particularly like the wing tip detailing at the front of these shoes. Before I purchased this pair, I tried on a pair of Loake boots which was supposed to be better -the price says it all. That pair was quite simple i.e. without wing tip detailing. But oh boy, it was such a hard work to get my foot into the boot and it was quite painful to wear. I don't know if it was just my foot or it was the shoe. Regardless, I feel that the pair from Tod's is more me.

If you guys were looking for something similar, I would recommend these:
Margeila boots from SSense was $1,000 now $700 USD - I really want this one!!!! Very unique... have you ever seen a pair of shoes with the leather bit covering bottom of the shoes?
Neil Barrett from Forward by Revolve Clothing was $730 now $351
Ksubi from farfetch was 174 eu now 87 eu
