from hotboots.com/bol posts
yesterday, some friends and i went to a place in commerce, georgia called Boots, Etc. to buy cowboy boots. Much to our delight, the staff consisted predominantly of college age cowboy types, all of whom not only had on boots but were so well-informed about boot makers, styles, etc. Anyway, I struck up a conversation with one of the guys about the justin’s i was trying on after he walked by and said "now that’s what i’m talkin’ about son. I love those" We chatted it up for a bit about different types of boots and reached a moment where he pulled up his pant leg to show me some custom boots he’d had made. I almost passed out. Then he said "feel ’em. they’re really smooth." of course i did. at any rate, i was about to explode and it was pretty obvious that he was too. turned out we both wear 10.5s so i became pretty bold and asked if i could try them on. he said "ok," so i did and he says "they look really nice on you, man." one thing led to another and he wound up coming to my place later that night….
