I have been frantically searching for a new pair of boots, as my favorite, urban, sort of funky looking pair was starting to become truly distressed (not fashionably distressed, I mean the sole separating from boot…). I wanted something brownish, grayish, but not dark brown-something I could also wear with black.
I searched several stores, including Hakei, where I was left in the dust. Finally walking home I noticed this boots, only 45 euros, in the window display of a small boutique near my house. They are studded with a cross and a great brownish color with a black sole-perfect to match with any color. I wanted something a bit more classic (who knows how long the studded trend will last for) but for 45 euros-who cares! I will be thrilled if they last me the season. The funny thing is-they are much more comfortable than the 150 euro pair I tried on at Hakei. They have a nice, solid sole which I like as well-I tend to give my boots a lot of wear and tear, as well as trudging them through rain, snow, mud, etc.
Another added bonus…they are made in Spain. I think supporting locally is fabulous-unfortunately- almost everything I own is made in China. Now I am not going to boycott buying things made in China but it´s nice to know I can afford to purchase and support things made here in Spain.
