Once upon a time, when I was quite a few years younger, I had a sudden craving for a pair of cowboy boots. They were in fashion at the time but I wanted a pair anyway.
I didn't have much money at the time to spend on something so frivolous as a pair of black cowboy boots, so I was also looking for a pair of cheap ones, and they had to be available in Australia (because, really, you have to try them on).
After weeks of searching I found them, and they were nearly perfect. With instep inserts, they were and I could wear them walking for a long time.
For me, they never left my regular shoe rotation. I wore through two pairs of heels as well (they were of unfortunatly cheap construction). The only reason I stopped wearing them was because my feet grew when I was pregant with MissIcy and they never went down again (this is quite common). I didn't have the heart to throw them out either. They've been sitting in my cupboard for the last two and a half years gathering dust.
But now, now I have a replacement pair. And oh, they are sooooo comfortable. That's because they are actually Kumfs!
Aren't they nice? The leather is not shiny, and the heel height it great. I've already worn them quite a lot and for quite long periods of time and they're just as comfortable as my other Kumfs boots.
I only wish they hit the leg a little higher. They're just a bit too short to wear with a skirt. But if they had been, they would have been even more expensive.
Anyway, I love my cowboy boots, again!
