I wanted to share the most coveted pair of shoes I own. I found them on one particularly rainy and gross weekend in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. My boyfriend and I were trying to go to a gallery show but it was closed. So we wandered around because, well, because why not? We were already out in the rain. As we turned a corner, I saw this teeny tiny little hole of a 'vintage shop' that looked more like a shanty with lots of boots. Naturally, I had to check it out.
Let me tell you, this place was stocked with amazing leather goods and some great old T-shirts, as well as other items. I picked out a great leather briefcase (that sadly, I don't use nearly as much as I should), and these bad boys:
Low and behold! I was looking exactly for a great pair of broken in motorcycle boots and these fit the ticket more than I could ever imagine. I tried them on and they fit perfectly. Like I was meant to find them. And not only that, but they were marked for $80 and the guy gave me 40% off each item, because I was the first person to make a purchase that day!
These boots are perfect for everything. They're my rain boots, snow boots, and my 'I don't want to wear heels today' shoes. They are perfectly beat up and soft. I've had them for 2 years now, and I will wear them until they disintegrate off my feet.
-If I ever remember the name/ location of the shop, I will absolutely post it for all you curious kids!
