I have spent the last handful of years buying vintage boots and handsome dress shoes, and I LOVE them. They will always have a place in my heart, and my closet. They look great with jeans and a t- shirt. Dressed down or up they totally work. Just like anything else, sometimes something shiny and new catches your eye. My love for boots lead me to Red Wings, they are timeless and QUALITY. I really love the way a good pair of boots wear in. A boot you can have forever.
