These are my beloved boots.
I received them as a gift from my Mother several Christmases ago. I'm guessing 2010? I have had them resoled once. I love them. I tried to replace them this year with no luck. They are starting to seem a bit shabby and I am not sure if resoling them will bring them back to life.
Maybe 2017 is the year of the new boot.
I have a thing for sturdy shoes. I've read it's a Capricorn thing: we're supposedly goats that like to climb. I suppose we need a respectable shoe to help us out. Whether it was written in the stars or not, I expect a lot from my shoes. My shoes need to go with most things and be comfortable and stylish (to me).
Also, in my drawing there's another pair in the background. I saw the movie Paddington Bear and I was so inspired by the set design & costumes I made a Pinterest board about it. The mother in the story had the best shoes and they looked like these. I found them on Amazon. I only have one or two outfits they work with. It's taken time to figure out those two outfits. Many trials and errors.
But don't worry. I am confident they will work their way into rotation. Trust.
In the meantime, I will keep wearing my old trusty boots with an open mind that new pair will find me at the right time.
