From one of my favorite shoe brands, Dolce Vita, comes these nice simple-with-a-twist black boots. It seems, from the variety of pictures out there, that those three buckle straps can be moved up and down the shaft of the boot (ahem) according to whim. That seems a little odd (I like them best low down), but nothing a good return policy can't potentially fix, I suppose.
DV by Dolce Vita "Ted" boots, $159.95. ($139.95 at Nordstrom!)
