Proof of My Adventures (and Misadventures!)

If you wear a 9 1/2 or 10 shoe...

...check out this eBay auction for brown Victorian boots at a great price!  This is an Oak Tree Farms style that's no longer in production.  If they were a size 11, I'd already have snapped them up.  Sadly, they're taunting me with the oh-so-close-but-not-quite size 10.  :'(  Maybe one of you lovely ladies can give them a good home!

Thanks for the tip! I'm bidding! Although my max is quite low, so I need to cross my fingers that there's no other interest.

Yay! I hope you win! She's been relisting these for a few weeks, but just dropped the price yesterday. Crossing my fingers for you!

Oops! I almost bid, then I thought to come here to see if anyone replied. We almost had a bidding war! If they don't fit you, can I try 'em on? If they fit me, I'll buy them for whatever you end up paying! I have a black pair similar to these, but I would love to have brown ones, too!

Definitely! Although I'll be amazed if I win them. And I'll let you know if I get outbid so you can jump in if you want.

Gosh, those are good-looking!

*nods confidently*
I'm quite sure you need a pair of elegant shoes like those in your wardrobe of footwear.
There must be a maker out there who supplies them in your shoe size...?

OK, confession time: I have a very similar pair already, made by the same company in the same color...but with a more wedge-style heel like you'd find on a cowboy boot. I just really like the look of the Louis heel, and for such a budget-friendly price I would happily have added to my growing collection. ;) This company is still making Victorian style boots (though not this particular style and color anymore,) but when they're brand new they run over $250. That is most definitely not in my budget!

"Bad Wine Is No Bargain..."

"...at any price," says a Spanish proverb.

I agree: if the price isn't budget-friendly, that's bad enough.
If the shoe isn't your-foot-friendly, that's an absolute deal breaker no matter how good the price is!

"...but with a more wedge-style heel like you'd find on a cowboy boot."
Maybe a Cuban heel? They aren't a true cowboy boot heel, but they're close....
