A long time ago, we established that I have a shoe problem. I may also have a boot problem. I love them. At present time I have 5 pairs: winter boots that are ugly but keep my feet super warm, plaid boots which need no justification, brown cowboyish boots and two pairs of black ones. The black ones are a story.
The black boots that I had bought ages ago finally gave up the ghost so I really needed a new pair. Last year, I hunted thrift shops high and low and couldn’t find anything that was comfortable and stylish. I broke down and bought a new pair at the Bay during their 75% off sale.
I learned something here. Being cheap, I set myself a budget of under $100 – which still killed me. I ended up with these for just over $50. They look cool but I can’t wear them if I intend to walk any great distances. My foot floats in them a bit and what I didn’t realize was that one should really sit down when trying on boots: these are so tall that I almost can’t bend my knee when wearing them.
Anyone else out there have a shoe/boot weakness?
