It should really be no surprise to discover that most Marin women have at least seven pairs of boots in the wardrobe. Around here boots are ubiquitous. We wear them with everything and for every season. We have pairs for hiking, pairs for working and pairs for dancing. Our plethora of pairs got me thinking: What makes for an excellent pairing?

When it comes to food and wine, those in the know look for a complementary pairing. In fact, a complementary pairing is sought after with many things and, to my mind, even down to the style of boots you wear to local hangouts. It seems that most Marin women intuitively agree with me on this fashion matter. For example, you won’t find many local women wearing hiking boots at Ross’ upscale Marché Aux Fleurs nor donning patent leather stiletto-heeled boots at Fairfax’s mountain biker haven Gestalt Haus. We know that these boot styles, although appropriate at other hangouts, don’t fit the spirit of the aforementioned eateries.

To make a harmonious boot-hangout pairing the boots’ styling, spirit, material and boot shaft and heel heights should be considered. To that end, I have selected the newest boot looks from San Anselmo’s Junction Shoes ( and paired them with complementary Marin eateries and hangouts.
