This weekend was my parents’ Ruby wedding anniversary, and, not being the types to want a lot of fuss, they decided they wanted to go and see Bob Dylan, who was playing in Glasgow last weekend. I’m a huge Dylan fan, so I got to go too (Don’t worry, they did invite me!), and because our tickets were for the standing area of the concert, I knew I’d need footwear I’d be comfortable in, and which I wouldn’t mind being trodden on occasionally, as is the way with concerts!
I think I’ve mentioned this before, but when it comes to comfort, I find heeled boots to be my best friends: a small heel gives more support than a flat, and the fact that your foot is fully enclosed just seems to make the shoe more comfortable, and less prone to sliping and sliding around. With that in mind, I decided to go with these New Look boots, because as well as fulfilling all of those other requirements, the fact that I’d had them for years means that they’re well and truly worn in, so I knew they’d be comfortable enough to stand around in for a few hours! (I was right about being trodden on, too: ouch!) I wore them again the next day, for a long walk with the dog, and I totally forgot to get a close-up of them, but trust me, you’re not missing much: they’re old, and a bit past their best and, well, they’re black boots: they all start to look the same after a while, don’t they?
These will probably only last for one more winter, and they’re due a visit to the cobbler soon, to be re-heeled, but for now, they’re safe!
