I finally found boots to kick around Europe in. Last time I was there I was wearing beat up old Dr. Marten's, but they're brown and rugged and I feel like taking it up a notch and looking more Euro and less Lumberjack this time around, so I upgraded to Prada.
These boots were lovely and glossy when I bought them yesterday, but I wore them all around town today (to Ellis Island and back!) and they're already getting a worn-in look. I feel more SWAT team in them than Euro, but that's okay with me.
