I really do need new boots this winter, since the boots I bought last year were secondhand, and have already begun allowing water to seep through the soles.
The $165 price tag is pretty far outside of my comfort zone, but I understand that it's actually a reasonable market price for well-heeled (ha) footwear. Unfortunately, my hemming and hawing about the price means that I missed the Labor Day sale (20% off), which would have saved me $33. Guess I'll wait and see if another sale comes along later this fall...
I'll definitely wait until after my wedding anniversary. (Ahem.)
Be patient, my dearies. Mama's gonna try and get you shipped home real soon.
