With wetter weather sure to arrive sometime I’d been thinking about treating myself to some ‘short boots’ to garden in. Something to puddle around in keeping my feet and ankles dry (and hopefully warm). Probably an unnecessary purchase because there’s a perfectly decent pair of blue wellies out in the garage plus I’ve had these ‘rubber shoe’s’ and these ‘rubber clogs’ for what seems like forever.
Over the years they’ve all been good for pottering around in the wet ground but my now very spread older ladies’ feet make it hard to get the shoes on and I’m beginning to find the clogs are heavy and unstable- balance is becoming a bit of an issue because my feet seem to slip about in them.
And if it’s wet enough to need knee high Wellington boots it’s too wet for me to be out there!
So I began to look online – but without thinking, I entered ‘boots for women’ (forgot the gardening bit)…..well that was interesting.
Do you know a pair of Blundstones boots for women now cost well over $200 – neither did I.
Guess I won’t be buying any of those.
Then for days afterwards….just to tease me and show me big brother is watching and my searching was recorded somewhere…. each time I was online this set of ads kept appearing….
Oooh I thought, those on the left are just what I’m looking for, short gum boots…or so I thought…
Turns out the uppers are actually a knit fabric…well that wouldn’t work would it.
They’d get all wet and dirty 😊
Available in lavender and sensible black as well as the ‘girly’ pink but thinking about it, those soles do look rather thick and clompy and I see the word ‘platform’ in the ad.
I didn’t get on well with them the first time round……so don’t think I’ll bother this time😊
As an aside, if you’ve time to waste and you want to see even more interesting ask Mr G to show you ‘women’s platform knitted boots’. There’s a whole world of weird and wonderful out there.
Fun Friday – the day you forget the worries of the week.
Will be back on Monday – see you then!
