….for these boots. They are over 15 years old. I bought them for two reasons: the zipper in the back and the square toe. I wear them with their cracked soles because my style is defined by love, not by perfection. Last week, I took the boots in for a possible resurrection. There was a lot of hope until the shoe repair man told me no. The boots will need to be moved from the go to list to the gotta let them go list. Eventually.
