These Boots are Made for Walkin'...NOT!

It's Jen's fault. I was working late like a good girl. She's the one who called me and said she was on the way to JC Penneys to buy shoes. My office is not far from Penneys. What am I gunna do...stay and work while my friend shoe shops alone? No way. Not me. I couldn't do that to her, so I hopped in my car and found her standing by a clearance table of boots.

There were tall boots, short boots, black boots, brown boots. It was a boot lover's paradise. Here's the thing...I didn't really need a pair of boots. Of course, you know I bought some. How do you pass up $70 boots for $10? Who cares that they were not my exact size...close enough. It wouldn't matter if I were an eskimo and it was ice on that clearance table. I would have definitely bought it! It was too good of a deal to pass up.

So I left with a cool pair of high-heeled, black boots. They seemed a little "high" for me, but I look so wonderfully tall in them, I pushed any doubting thoughts to the back of my mind. Surely the height advantage is worth the trade off of comfort.

I decided to wear the boots to work today. I had an important meeting and thought looking tall would be a good idea. As an afterthought, I tossed my loafers into my bag. Good thing. I arrived at work at 7:45am. The boots came off at 8:15. I was much shorter for the rest of the day, but a whole lot more comfortable.

OUCH!! :-( Glad I saw this blog before I went shopping @ JCP's and saw all their boots on sale. Kept me from indulging! They sure are cute boots though! PD in CO

Thanks, I think they're really cute, too! I suppose I'll have to wear them out to dinner or to church and not try for all day at the office. I have too much running around to do at work!

Ok I admit it! But you have taught me well! I wore mine for a couple of hours the other day. It wasn't too bad. They are NOT water proof... Love Jen

Funny thing...I sent your blog posting, complete w/picture to a co-worker. Here was her response:

"They are the same boots I bought! I haven’t worn those yet. I guess you’ll know if you see me walking around barefoot.;-)"

Blessings...PD in CO

PD - That's funny! I've worn my new boots a little more since I posted this. It's not so much that they are uncomfortable...I just can't walk fast enough in them!! I'm on the go too much at work to walk "carefully" around in heels all day. It wasn't conducive to running up and down an airplane hangar! I'm sure your co-worker will love them.
