for years i have lusted after la canadienne boots. but they are pricey, and i have always felt that i couldn’t splurge in quite that way on myself.

now i find that i need to replace every. last. pair. of shoes i own. seems my feet have spread a bit, not enough to measure “wide,” but enough that the size i’ve worn for the last 20 years is now too small. and that is alotta shoes that gotta go.

one pair in, one pair out, mac suggests. and since it’s december, boots were the first in. my first la canadiennes. and can i just say? from the knees down, i look good.  damn.
