What: Black leather calf-length boots, unknown brand
When: Tuesday, February 2nd
Where: Running errands around town
With: Dorothy Perkins bow coat (via eBay), gold belt (no idea)
Just a quick snap while out in the snow earlier this week (yes, the dreaded snow is back: that’s some of it on the toe of my boot, it’s not a design feature, I promise!). I’ve had these boots for, ooh, about six years now? I bought them in TK Maxx, and any brand name has long since worn off, so I’ve no idea who made them, but whoever it was, I would like to salute them for being the only brand at the time to make a pair of boots that actually fit my calves without looking like wellies. Thank you, unknown boot-maker! May you be rewarded in shoe heaven!
Despite the miracle of Calves That Fit, OMG!, I actually can’t remember the last time I wore these. The Shoe Challenge is definitely doing its job, though, because rather than just grabbing my usual boots when I was getting ready to go out on Tuesday, it made me stop for a moment and pick these instead. Rediscovering old shoes you haven’t worn in years: it’s like getting new shoes, only, er, not as good.
So! Two pairs down, and now a new challenge presents itself: wearing anything other than boots when it insists on being freezing cold and/or snowing all the time. Gah.
