Over the past few weeks I've realized that I needed a new pair of winter boots. Although trusty, my boots are three winters old and starting to feel their age. I had been putting off buying a new pair until I was in the United States in January, but I just bought a new pair. These boots are quite similar to my old ones, but black instead of brown, and studs instead of straps. I am pleased with the style and price and hopefully these babies will last me another three years.
