I recently treated myself to a new pair of boots. As much as I like hunting for deals in the thrift stores (yesterday I posted that I found two cashmere sweaters for $5 each, and I recently found a merino wool vest - in perfect condition - for $2.50), I still buy my shoes new. I've learned (the hard way) that it's important to have good shoes. They keep everything in line, which keeps my back and my knees and my hips, etc. healthy. So anyway, I found a really cute pair of Clarks boots on sale at Zappos. They were marked down to $119 from $190! They came last night. I was a little nervous, because they weren't marked as "extended calf." No matter how much weight I lose or what size I become anywhere else, my calves, I think, are just destined to be big. Anyway.
I put on the boots last night, and they freaking zip up! No squeezing or contorting my calves to get them in, the boots just fit! I was SOOOOO excited.
(In full disclosure, I bought the boots because the reviews said that the calves ran really wide, but I don't care. They weren't advertised as such.)
