Quest for the perfect boot

It is time to buy a new pair of knee-high black boots. I paid $30 for mine at Target and they have lasted me five years. Well, they’ve probably lasted maybe 3 years but I’ve been wearing them since then anyway. I know exactly what I want and I’m having trouble finding it: black, slightly shiny or satiny finish, high stacked heel, small platform, not a pointy toe, zip on the side or stretch to make it easy to put them on, vegan, fairly narrow calf. Everything I’ve found so far has a narrow thin heel, or it’s too flat and riding boot-like, or it has too many shenanigans with slouchy sides and tassels and 18 million buckles.

Now I’m going to search for leather boots in the style I want, not because I would actually buy leather but just to see if the look I desire is even sold nowadays, or if it’s too “2003 called, they want their boots back”.

Update: These would do the trick but they’re leather. (And $160.)

    but I don’t know about leather
    I was looking for heels like that now that BF is soooo tall that I can, but no luck in non leather either.
