These boots were made for.......  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters!  How are we all today?  I trust you are all well, and are almost ready for Christmas.  Now why am I disturbing your  Wednesday?  Because I'mbored and decided to bug you lot *G*

Right I have a little story to tell, it concerns the purchase of new boots and the reactions they've caused.   I found this amazing company called Alternative Footwear, to start with I ordered a pair of black boots with gold trimmings.  But alas due to the fact I have elephant calfs (and the elephant wants them back) they did not fit. So after much soul searching, and ringing and annoying the hell out of them I settled on another pair.

The new boots were ordered and they arrived, they are a thing of beauty .  They are lace ups which means they bloody well fit!  Even better they come with interchangable ribbons, I have black, pink, purple and red.

On the first day of wearing them I went with the pink, and according to the boss who loves my boots a colleague sniffed as I tottered by "Has Ali got some new boots? Hmmm they look like bedroom boots to me."  Now I don't know what she gets up to in the privacy of her own home, but I think these look great at work.

The next time I wore them I put the purple ribbons on, and nearly caused a visitor to have a heart attack. Especially when the boss gleefully informed him for my last day before Christmas the red ribbons are comming out, and she'll see if I can attach Christmas baubles *G*

So in case you're wondering what they look like........

Oo those are gorgeous!! I have massive calves too, and short legs, so boots don't quite work for me, but I love the idea of them. Also, I am totally for trying out the bauble idea! ;D

It can take me ages to find boots that fit, but sometime I just refuse to give up. I think it's a fun idea, so it looks like the christmas tree will be raided.
