Well, they might not be vintage but they are beat up/old.
There is a girls trip to Nashville on the horizon, and I really wanted a pair of cowboy boots to take with me. I also considered buying them there, but when my mom & sister were in town over the weekend, we decided to head out and see what we could find. I've always wanted to go to Alcala's, which is a pretty famous Western Wear store. Think country singers & $3,000+ pairs of boots. However, we passed Ragstock on the way, went in & hit the cowboy boot jackpot.
I wish I was cool enough to pull off vintage pieces, but the reality is I can't & I have always been slightly creeped out by secondhand clothing/shoes. So when I found these Justin boots, I surprised myself when I realized that I had to have them. I may or may not have rubbed hand sanitizer on my feet after trying them on (what? It was a sandal kind of day & there was NO WAY I was going to put on a dirty sock!).
I like that they are already worn-in. The leather just looks fantastic.
We then hit up Alcala's & tried on boot after boot...
There were some serious boots here. We also found the same brand of boots that we scored at Ragstock (Justin & Durango for my sister) for sometimes hundreds of dollars more!
We were there for over an hour & it was a lot of fun. However, I am so glad that I ended up with the boots that I have now. I can see myself wearing the heck out of them all fall and winter - I love them that much!
