Got your buckle properly swashed? Do your feet yearn for the days of 1980s glam metal in LA? I’m sure these boots were there at that time, and they can tell your feet all about it. Can’t you just smell the Mötley Crüe on ’em?
These sweet ol’ boots have a thick, soft leather upper which is growing a bit thin with age around the foot. No tears, rips, or breakthroughs — they’re just at that age, is all. The hardware is all freaking excellent, and the soles are worn so smooth with use that you could damn near pull them off and examine your excellent shaggy hair in ’em. The heels show a bit of over-wear.
There’s still a life ahead of these boots, whether it’s pillaging on the ocean blue, touring in the company of your electric guitar and Marshall stack, or riding on dry days where traction ain’t no never mind. One could resole for more traction, of course.
Size… about 7.5 – 8.5 ish men’s, about 9 or 10 women’s.
$39, which is exactly three times what I paid for the ticket to my first Mötley Crüe concert in 1983.
