The other night I sat watching hubby polishing his new Redback boots. (One of only two Australian made brands I could find with steel caps!) I was enjoying mocking him as he applied leather seal because I don't ever fuss over mine - secretly I was impressed that he was looking after them so well, but don't tell him that.
So we began discussing how many years Me Boots had survived without me caring for them at all. I had always loved lace ups and refused to wear elastic sided. It was when I was pregnant with Miss Four that I gave in. It was too hard to get to my feet around my large stomach to do up the laces (and I was ridiculously busy with her brother who was only about one.) Sooooo, Me Boots are five years old.
I wear them almost every day. I wear them with anything. I love skirts and dresses and looking feminine but usually I wear Me Boots with them. They even make great slippers! The only times I wear decent looking shoes are if I go out, say to dinner or a friend's social occasion, or if I have a meeting. Anywhere else, school, shopping etc., and I wear Me Boots.
