And that’s just what they’ll do.
And one of these days these boots
Are going to walk all over you!”
- pop song written by Lee Hazlewood & recorded by Nancy Sinatra. It hit #1 in the charts in 1966.
I’m not very fashionable and I don’t usually get very excited about material purchases but I have to say that the boots I bought this winter are getting some good mileage.
I’ve been wearing them to school and church so often they probably appear to be my only pair of shoes!
When I was gushing over how handy they are to spruce up an outfit Andie razzed me about making such a big deal over a simple pair of boots. This may not be verbatim but she basically said that most people can wear their boots without making such a fuss over them! (thank you Andie)
But, what Andie doesn’t realize is that I haven’t always had such positive relationships with my boots. As a kid I wore cowboy boots to ride horses at my grandparent’s ranch but getting the boots on and off was a huge ordeal (think ski boot level challenging). Then in high school when Fry boots were all the rage I wore them but I think I liked the status more than the boot (typical high schooler mentality).
The selling point for my Alberto Fermani boots was the zipper. It might not be cool to have a zipper and I really did like some Tori Burch boots with no zipper, but, in the end, that handy zipper won me over.
I considered posting a photo with me wearing the boots but I couldn’t bring myself to do that. Besides, they probably look better off anyway; I don’t think I quite do them justice!
