The kicker to this is A.)I'm cheap and don't like to actually buy boots (and I'm not implying by the italics that I steal them!) and B.) Once you find a good pair and get them broke in, it's much more economical to just get them re-soled than to buy all brand new ones and start the process over again.
For Hubs birthday recently, I got his work lacers resoled for him. (his bday is at the beginning of May and he asked me in December to get them done... then to boot, I used it as part of his bday present... aren't I a good wife?!) When he and I went to pick them up and the gentleman brought them to the counter, we had to double check the claim ticket because we didn't recognize the boots after they had been cleaned and conditioned!
As for tall black boots that go up over your calves (aka: hooker boots), I love those too! But my calves are too
But these boots were a steal.
I got them at The Christmas Tree Shops a year or so ago for $12. (please note that when I bought them, they were clean and shiny.)
You must know that I have owned muck boots before, but none this pretty. I couldn't for the life of me figure out why any gal would need muck boots that were pretty like these unless she was outta her muckin' mind.
Apparently, other ladies that purchase cute rubber boots bought them to wear in the rain...not the muck. Ha! Who knew?! I actually saw a bunch of teen-ish aged gals wearing some similar to mine when I went into town shortly after I bought mine! (Yes, I go into town... its like a journey all on its own)
I had no idea I was making a stylish statement by wearing adorable boots to the pig pen! And, as a bonus, these bad boys keep the muck (which is far more than just mud) and water off my toes!
I'll have to make sure and tell the Daves that I'm in style when I go out to feed them! I know they'll be impressed.... actually, that's a lie, they won't care in the slightest bit as long as I feed them while I'm there.
But I'll know that I'm lookin' cute in my stylin' muck boots! Anyone else do dirty chores in cute boots? I can't be the only one...
Until the next adventure...
