I love boots! When I was younger I had 28 pairs at one time.... I now have expensive tastes & many more things to spend my dollars on than boots.
So way back (wow!) about in 2003, I saw a pair of boots I really liked in Long Creek Outfitters (local western store near us). But, I had recently bought a very expensive pair of purple ostrich boots..... So, there was no way I could justify another pair of $300+ Boots. So, I passed....
Every time we went in the store (usually every 2-3 months) I'd oogle the boots, & be thankful for the purple pair I had.
They were Luchesse's. My purple boots are Luchesse's. I love them. Great fit, super comfortable.
Several years passed & not many of this Luchesse's sold.
Why? Well....they were lime green
Yep, wierd AND expensive
So, a couple of weeks ago, My wonderful husband finally went & bought himself a new pair of boots...without trying them on. Why, well he bought the exact same brand, but a different color than he had.
We went to return those boots. My everyday boots, are getting quite worn. So I went to look & possibly buy another pair. I walked in the clearance room...... The Lime green boots stared at me. But, they'd called my name for years. They were the "wrong" size....... What the heck, I tried them on.......
Oh my.... They FIT!!!!
Oh my. Put them back in the box.
Wandered around for another bit.....
They were on clearance.....
Figured the price.....
Cheaper than a new pair of "regular" boots......
Yep, I did it
