Just as I was angrily thinking about how thrift stores never have any shoes my size I look up and see these babies. I have been searching for boots like these for a REALLY long time. I was close to buying really overpriced ones at a vintage store on Haight st. once but I just couldn't get myself to pay anything over $50 for used boots. SO what's the moral of the story? Don't give up if there's ever a certain item you're looking for!
