One of the perils of moving to another country is working out how to get your stuff over there. We ended up taking suitcases and also shipping over some clothes and kitchen stuff. On the day that the international movers came, I was not at my best and did a pretty average job of packing the right stuff. Consequently, I have had to invest in some new clothes, especially warm ones, as I overestimated how warm it is in summer. (FYI it is not warm!) So these boots (from here and here) are on their way to me now - hopefully they'll fill the wardrobe hole that is not-sandals and not-winter knee high boots.
