    the ultimate boot

    April 7th, 2015 | News | admin | No Comments

    With the nice rainstorm we had this morning, my thoughts have once again turned to boots but not just any boots. My friend and I have been obsessing about this pair of boots for months now; neither of us can justify buying the though. It is the perfect combination of simple yet interesting, classic but […]
