The last time I bought tall boots I was 15. And god only knows that I used and abused those poor ariats throughout my junior years.
Last night…I bought new boots!! It was a goal of mine for 2014 to find boots that would fit my rather beefy calves yet could still accommodate my very long legs all while still looking pretty. I tried on several types, and discovered that sadly Ariats just did not fit me anymore. My trainer is a huge promoter of Tredstep boots, and loves her own pair. Coming from someone who practically lives in theirs, I have been keeping my eye out looking to buy the somewhat cheaper version (budgets suck) of the boots.
And then yesterday, in between two meetings at work I saw Tackoftheday.com was selling the Tredstep Da Vinci Tall boots…in TALL! HALLELUJAH! And with savings of almost $300, lets do this!
First pass at the husband earned me narrowed, suspicious eyes…I poured him another beer, got myself a hefty glass of wine and tried again. This time I followed him to grill and held the plate of burgers for him while he ignored me. Finally, over dinner he gave in.
These beauties are on their way to me!
Point is, I’m super excited. If they fit like they are supposed to, and how my trainers do, I’ll be set. Tackoftheday-you are the best! Also, husbands who continue to let you obliterate the budget…they are pretty cool too!
My saddle is still craving this amazing stuff! Equestrian at Hart’s Giveaway for Higher Standards Soap is ending soon!
