Jeffrey Campbell "Tardy" Boots

(UPDATED: July 27, 2015)

The "Tardy" boots from Jeffrey Campbell can be thought of as the wedge sister of "Lita." While the latter boots are vastly more popular, the Tardy boots are just as respected. Tardy is a tough girl who doesn't compromise toughness for style. Tardy's the kind of girl in which while she prefers combat (based on her style), she wants to remain as charming and as girly as the "Lita" boots. So to help her cause, Tardy is a pair of combat boots with a platform wedge base. You can go with her in a number of colors, or you can go all-black with these.

So who is Tardy from Jeffrey Campbell? This is how the Tardy boots look:

Now let's talk more about these boots.

--- Jeffrey Campbell "Tardy" Boots ---

Here are some figures on the Jeffrey Campbell "Tardy" boots:

• heel height is 5.5 inches (13.97 centimeters) tall
• platform base is 2 inches (5.08 centimeters) high
• rubber sole
• various materials for the shoe material- leather, suede, velvet, patterns, etc.
• two-tone (except for the all-black models)

I read from SoleStruck that these boots run true to size, or if anything... slightly smaller.

Tardy Inspiration: Amy A La Mode.

With a cropped top and denim short-shorts, Amy proudly wears her "Tardy" boots in "One day he will wake up and realize I am the one, then I will be gone." - Amy A La Mode.

Here are some other "Tardy" boots worn by other bloggers and other people:

There are more bloggers who wear the "Lita" boots more than the "Tardy" boots. So therefore, I'm sorry I couldn't find any more bloggers who wear the Jeffrey Campbell "Tardy" boots.

--- My Thoughts on the Jeffrey Campbell "Tardy" Boots ---

I guess these boots offer the just right balance of chic and tough. "Tardy" makes "Lita" look soft. It's just that Tardy has that little extra that makes her stylish while also being tough. Tardy is just the girl who while having a platform wedge base, looks even more edgy and tough compared to the "Lita" boots. I am in no way crazy over any combat-style boots. However, their appeal is very much understandable.

These "Tardy" boots came to play and are ready to play. Don't be tardy for the party! :)

While I am a huge fan of Jeffrey Campbell shoes, these combat-style ones are slightly too massive though. The white ones one of the bloggers wore looked cute though. :)
I am more of a fan of Lita and Foxy shoes, maybe someday I will be able to get hold of them :)
