I finally found a decent THRIFT STORE - and this is the gem I've been searching for all along. It's a small store off the beaten path and packed with goodies and treasures.
MAJOR SCORE: I found these Paul Green boots in my size ( a 1/2 size which is hard to find over here) and were BRAND NEW. I paid 30e ($45) for them, and now I see Nordstrom is carrying them in a NOT-AS-COOL version for $449!!!
So what is the BIG DEAL with these boots? I had no idea until I did some research. Here's the scoop:
PAUL GREEN boots are made in Austria with highest quality leather and are DESIGNED to be worn on the UNSTABLE cobbled stone streets. See how the edges are rounded and sloped up?
I wore these all weekend long during my last trip and my feet felt great the entire time. Now if they were only this comfortable with a sexy heel, I would be set!
Does anyone have any suggestions for cute-yet-comfortable shoes???
