Title: I GOTS BOOTS!!!
Post by: *Teach* on October 18, 2008, 11:36:57 PM
I seriously doubt that anyone would recall one of my first posts ever as being in this thread. When I came across this forum I was looking for myself some boots and could not find ANYTHING I liked or could afford at the time (divorce and hurricane Rita had kicked my financial butt). I have unusual sized feet and it is always difficult to find shoes to fit and has been impossible to find boots for faire.
Now... finally... almost 3 years later I found them
My boots!
They are exactly what I have been looking for, compliments either pirate or scottish garb.
Thanks of course to the Lovely Lady Trinn for pointing me in the right direction.
And now... without furthur ado
My Boots:

Actually, I think I remember recommending a pair of plain black Justin Ropers as a budget alternative. These are obviously the better choice.  :) I really want a pair of the curly toed ones that I saw last season.

*and gives the rum a weird aftertaste*

Awesome boots, Teach!  I love my Sandlars, but yours look way cooler.  Regarding the rum - how about a tube-shaped flask tucked into the laces?  Not a lot of rum, but still...

Congrats! Sandlar boots are great. When I come down to TRF this weekend we'll have to compare our Sandlars!
