Bah. Boots I've been wanting for a while now were just discontinued last week. I didn't want to buy them until I could actually get to store and try them on. Now I have to decide whether I buy them sight unseen (zappos.com has a good return policy, so it's not a really dangerous chance I'm taking) so I can get last pair in my size before they sell it, or whether I wait and hope I can fin dsomething else. Good quality shoes, all leather, so can be recrafted and worn for years. Closest pair in look and quality costs almost twice as much though if I miss these. Bah. More than i really want to spen dright now though, even if they are worth every dollar.
