No, It's Not A Girl Thing

Does anyone have $500 that they would be willing to give me? Because I really, really, really want these...

I'm going to take this moment to point out that I am NOT a "shoe person". In all honesty I own 4 pairs of shoes and only wear the one pair all the time. I don't see the point in owning hundred of pairs of shoes. I only have the one pair of feet. But I am in love with these boots.
I should mention that they are made by Motor Cowboy, makers of kick ass boots. Seriously, if I strike it rich these guys are going to benefit. If you have already struck it rich, you should check them out. Because as much as I love their shit, it ain't cheap.

Half a G for a pair of fucking boots?

Have you LOST your mind?

Fab: You should see how much Stuart Weitzman shoes cost.

Look at it this way: I keep my shoes for about 10 years, since I buy classic. For $500, that's about what, $50 a year? Worth it, considering I could buy pieces of shit costing $75 and they only last about six months. The only loafers that I like, when I travel, I have to replace every six months.

I own about 40 pairs of shoes, but that includes three pairs of fluffy house shoes. I do wear most of them, but there are about 5pair I would give to Goodwill.

I'll take a picture later of my shoes racks. Yes I said racks with an S.

As for the boots, they kinda look like duckies on the front. Remember duckies?

500 Dalziels? I make that on a weekend. When's your birthday?

Robin said...

I love the boots but are they really worth $500? You can find awesome boots like that for under $50.

Fab - Most likely, but the boot have very little to do with it.

Absurdist - Exactly. If I wear these boots until they fall completely apart (which my experience with shoes tells me I will) then they're really not all that bad. And no, they don't look like duckies, they look like awesome.

Ask - May 29th.

Robin - I could pick up a cheaper pair, but I'll never find this pair. Also these are custom made for you. You take all kinds of measurements so they fit you and you alone. I think that makes it worth the money.

Robin said...

My feet are quite special, they could use some shoes designed just for them...same with bras.

Gwenhwyfar said...

So it's agreed then. We need to find a sugar daddy... named Kevin.

Robin said...

We're always thinking alike.

Ask said...

Robin; don't forget these are nerd shoes, which have strong pull on our Miss J.

Mal Reynolds (from Firefly) boots?! ::dies:: Amazing.

Gwenhwyfar said...

Robin - Birds of a feather and what not.

Ask - Quiet you!

sourpuss - Now that you're dead I can have them all to myself.
