Not because they aren't made of awesome, because they are, but because tonight Middle Daughter and I went out spleamplunking (kind of like spelunking, but with a steampunk focus, and in a store, not a cave) and I found some other boots which are almost as cool, but still work wearable.
What do you think? Will they do? They are just a weensy bit tight on my sadly fat right calf. Which is ironic, because they make my lone left cankle look teeny tiny.
Of course you know what's going to happen. I'm going to have to order the steampunk boots so I can compare them. Which is really, really dangerous because I will somehow manage to justify keeping both of them. All the while pretending like I haven't already bought these.
I think someone needs to stage an intervention.
