This Halloween weekend is supposed to be decent, weather-wise, but it's definitely cold out there. This week has had us hovering steadily around 0 degrees during the warmest parts of the day. Not really the stuff dreams are made of.
Finally got around to picking up my revitalized boots! This particular pair has been to the shoe guy no less than 3 times. They're not much to look at when my feet and legs aren't in them, but they're wonderful. Go with everything. Tough as nails.
The wooden platform parts on the bottom have really protected the leather portions. Shoe-guy made them all shiny.
I've had these trusty boots since the 2006. Every year I go out shopping for new ones (sometimes successful, sometimes not), but these are still my favourites. They're from Topshop in London, UK. They go all the way up to my knees.
This pair is newer from last year. The lower, thicker heel makes these more conducive to hours of walking. These are actually lined with insulation, charcoal grey, and have a lot of stitching.
I'm pretty "whatever" about the detailing. I actually prefer my boots to be as non-ornamental as possible, but the stitching isn't as noticeable once I've got them on.
The fit on this pair is very snug, thanks to Browns carrying size 5 all the time! They're not slouchy like the previous pair, which make them good for wearing under jeans in addition to them being good for jeans getting tucked-in.
So much talk about boots!
Well, when you live in a city with freezing temperatures for much of the year, you have to know what you're looking for. Up here, a good pair of boots goes a long way. I am so impressed and grateful my hard-working boots have been rehabilitated. Thank you, Southgate shoe guy!
Here we go.
