Something I Don't Get


I'm not sure why but the return of this perfectly reasonable 1980's boot is giving me the heebie jeebies. They're very practical, they're comfortable, I loved them back in 1980-whatever. You can even get many styles in purple which was my dearest wish twenty years ago. Now they just give me the creeps.

Maybe it's insuppressible memories of the annoying girls with giant hair who also wore those boots? Not that there's anything wrong with giant hair. I don't know. Maybe I'll figure it out sometime down the line. I don't think I'll be succumbing to the charms of a pair of them any time soon though. I already did that.

Purple shoes are big this year. At least according to endless.com. :p

Didn't you have a pair of purple suede ones like that back in the day?

I had a pair of these in brown in the third grade. They didn't have very good treads on the soles. I remember slipping and falling a few times in the schoolyard. On asphalt. Without the benefit of snow or ice. I loved them anyway.
