Part 3 - BOOTS
I live in boots all winter and try to reason with myself that there is still a case to wear them in the early parts of autumn and latter parts of spring. They have become my uniform. Case in point, there ended up being a crack in one of the soles and I can tell you, I have never thrown shoes away because I have worn them out! Normally, it is the total opposite, thrown out because I hardly wear them!
So, I always invest in my boots. I justify with myself my "need" for them even when they are just that tiny bit too expensive.
My latest purchase is the Grenson shoes you see above. I am ashamed to say I only discovered Grenson last year. However, after being drawn to the way they make boots and the style I was sure my next pair would be from them. Grenson uses the Goodyear Welted process which means the shoes last longer and is able to be resoled many times. The brogue detailing is a lovely masculine touch and I can not wait to wear them.
Anyone else who wears Grenson?
My Hugo Boss black boots are the epitome of quality. I have had this pair for around 5 years now and they look as good as new. The quality is impeccable, I once wore them in a down pour for a whole day and not one single inch of my feet got wet. While many of my friends were not that lucky. Also, I had to wear them on a flight a few years ago and was so surprised that being uncomfortable was not even an issue!
