There they were. THE autumn shoes I had only wished to come upon in my dreams.
The perfect mix of khaki x black coolness and practical “no slipping on wet leaves”-soles, made by SLY. And I kind of walked past them, thinking no no, there’s no space for another pair!
I think that was on a Saturday… I spent the following morning clearing out my shoe boxes, because a little voice in my head told me that there would be enough space for another, tiny, little, new pair of slightly chunky boots…
And there was! I succeeded! I just had to throw out an old pair of Zara boots, that I actually loved quite a bit, but looking at the condition they were in… no Mister Mint repair service on earth could put that heel back together… So I thanked them for their hard work these past years and moved on to picking up the new guys in town.
I guess you can tell how relieved I was, when the shop staff handed the box with my size in it over to me with the words “This is the last pair, you’re lucky!”
And when they actually fit me, because Japanese shoes sizing is quite interesting sometimes – but they did fit and that’s what matters.
The first outing for them was already a challenge already – Typhoon No. 18, lots of rain and lots of wind. Nevertheless the boots kept my feet dry and I had a lot of fun stomping though puddles in the rain.
