I admire your wife's taste. Thats awesome that she enjoys a good pair of shoes. Too bad I cant get my girlfriend to wear leather anything... cant say shes too happy about my sudden infatuation with leather shoes. But to her defense, she did just buy me a lovely victorinox alliance chrono for no reason (not yet apparent anyway).
She is really getting into the boot thing. Just the other day she said she wants a pair of burgundy shell boots next....ugh.
Watch, she has a walnut calf Bayfield (perf. captoe boot) and a brown grain Eagle Country boot. I think her favorite is the Eagle Country, but she gets all kinds of compliments on the walnut Bayfield.
Just to keep on topic....if Alden made her size I'd be all over it.
