Happy President’ day!
Today was kind of lucky day for me, I went to Nordstrom Rack at Downtown Seattle randomly due to a day off for college kids. I went straight up to the third floor as always to start my boots hunt even I have a pair of Dr.martens 14 holes on my feet. I usually starts browsing from size 10 1/2, even though they are too big for me, and I will browsing to size 8.5. My shoe size is US 9, still want to see if I see some cool boots in other sizes. I kept my head up because I know they always put the tall boots on the top of the shelf. At the aisle for size 9, I saw a really cool pair of tall boots on the top of the middle of the aisle. I went straight to them, they are a cool pair of motorcycle boots. I took them and tried them out. I took off my Dr.martens boots which they were so comfortable for all day wearing. And I pulled on these tall babies. They are right below my knee, really supple leather. Made in Italy. Leather lined. All leather upper, with quilted stitching. I just love they have two buckles and a protective cap just like the motorcycle cop boots in Hong Kong. They are really expensive though! The retail price is $1,200 and they are on sale for $500, almost like saved 60%. They are the same price as Wesco boots or Dehner. Just because they are luxury brand so they are overpriced. But I still bought them just because I kind of try them at home and I can make my decision during the 30 days return period. It was funny that when I was checking out, the cashier was really surprised that a young man is buying a pair of motorcycles boots. She was shocked that they cost $500 and she commented she had never seen a pair of boots as expensive as these are. I was thinking in my mind, “I have seen more expensive for a pair of boots. :)”
Prp: They are hard to find. Very limited quantity in the world. Ralph Lauren don’t sell them anymore. Its hard to a pair of boots like these anymore. Very high quality. Handsome.
Cons: Expensive. They are not tall enough. It use hook-and-loop straps instead of zippers for easy on and off.
So the question for you guys is Should I keep these pair of boots or should I spend the money on a pair of Wesco boots or Dehner patrol boots?
I need your comments.
