Vintage (Black) Boots

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well, I asked for some advice recently about some boots but, my dad pulled these out of his closet today. He said he bought them when he was about my age, which is about 30 years ago. (Do the 1970'si still count as vintage?)

They just about fit, slightly spacious, but this can be helped with an extra sole.
I thought I'd share this find with you. Whaddaya think?

The riding heels limit you. Down here, nobody'd look twice, but in a lot of places people would think you're trying to be a cowboy. The Roper type heel is much less conspicuous.

I guess I'll try wearing them, cowboy's aren't a real big phenomenon so I wonder how people will react.
There wouldn't be a way for shoemaker to edit them in any way?

Yeah, you could chop off the heels and nail on a new one, but at that point you may as well buy a pair that fits from Ebay or a thrift shop or something. I agree, I'd feel kind of goofy wearing those heels around where there were not horses.

I've checked at my local shoemaker, he can take off about 1 centimeter. If the heel gets any shorter than that I'll be unable to walk on the shoes. :/
We don't have alot of thrift shops here and I don't trust Ebay. Ebay scammed me once resulting in a bailiff at my door, so f#ck them.

Anyways, the hunt for nice boots goes on! There's an huge outlet opening near here in November.

Pray tell. Oh, and is there a way we can keep kitonbrioni from seeing this? I fear he may have a heart attack at the prospect of such vindication.
