I Don’t Need 3 Pairs Of Black Cowboy Boots

 

I wear cowboy boots from September to June.  I grew up in New Mexico, so cowboy boots are stylish and come in so many great combinations.  Mostly, though, I wear them because I have size 11 feet, so stylish shoes for women are few and far between.  I can select my favorite cowboy boots from shelves and shelves full of size 9 1/2 men’s size boots!

Cowboy boots are great because they can be resoled forever at a fraction of the cost of a new pair.  Since a black boot goes with everything I wear, I often have more than one pair in different skins, heights or stitching.  If a great new pair comes into my life, I paint the oldest pair a delicious new color!  No one else has these baby blues!

I use a fine natural bristle brush and latex paint.  I buy the paint in “trial sizes” at my local Ace Hardware store.  If the leather isn’t all ready roughed up, I lightly sand the surface with fine grit sand paper.  Carefully paint outside the lines of the stitching and witness your comfy old boots get a dramatic transformation into a new favorite that is uniquely yours.

Until next time,

Garbage Girl
