Purple Desert Boots


The nice people over at Wanted sent me an email a couple weeks ago asking if I'd be into them sending me a pair of shoes. I wasn't sure I would find something that I liked but as soon as I laid eyes on these desert boots, I was smitten.

WHAT A RIDICULOUS SHOE!, I thought.
But god knows I love a ridiculous shoe and since I still couldn't get them out of my mind a couple days later, I decided to go ahead and take the plunge.

These boots are meant to be my everyday scrounging around shoes, because as much as I want to think that my Wang manshoes are a "comfortable everyday" shoe, the truth is that they are not and my feet would probz really appreciate it if I stopped treating them as such. Generally, I like my everyday whatever shoes to be the opposite of something that seemingly "goes with everything" and I'm only getting a new pair because my little scrunched down boots, that I have in silver AND gold, no longer have soles and it's getting too cold out for me to walk around with sock on cement (I know, I know, I could throw them away but true shoe love is forever!).

Well, that was QUITE a tangent, but bottomline is the shoes are pretty comfortable. I will buy them new regular purple shoelaces since these round super bright acrylic things are a little waah. The leather around the soles is not evenly sewn on both pairs but I'm gonna go with what my boyfriend said about it being a "rustic" thing even though I'm certain that it's not.
Overall though? I'm super stoked on these. They'll bring a cool awkward vibe to my everyday wear.
