There's something about riding boots....I love them even though I've been on a horse exactly once in my life. I got these beauties at a little antique shop we like to visit when we go back east. I spotted them right away and zeroed in on them only to discover they had "display" marked on them - booooo!They had a gorgeous patina, worked in just so, and I knew they were my size just by looking at them. Well, let's just say after about 10 minutes I charmed Fritzie into selling them to me. As I tried them on, she shouted "they're perfectly made for you!" I couldn't agree more.
