Shari asked for stories about the boots. The truth is, very few of them have stories beyond, "Man, those are great-looking boots!"
These have a little one. Hannah, Briton and I went to Mall of Georgia for some shopping, and I was wearing them.
We didn't even get halfway around the top floor before I realized they were not going to be amenable to much walking. So, I headed into the nearest store with shoes and bought myself some purple Converse to wear the rest of the day.
To this day, they're the only pair of boots I own that are only worn for "show," not "function."
