Shoe # 36 – (Ankle?) boots

The shoe saved today for the shoechallenge is the sister of the one saved yesterday. They were also made by my Brasilian friends Totty and Lea. Both pairs must be almost 10 years old. You can tell by how worn they are. But I can’t trow them out. They also have sentimental value for me because they were handmade by my friends.

I keep using the question mark next to ankle because I don’t really know how to call this type of boots. Ten years ago, they were made to be worn with straight or flare pants. I think back them we have this type of boots and the knee length ones that were mostly used use skirts or dresses. Leggings and skinny jeans were in I think. At least not in Brasil.

These are not exactly ankle boots so I’ll keep calling ankle? with the question mark in the lack of a better term for them. I still have one more pair, also handmade but less worn. The remaining pair has high stiletto style heels and I wouldn’t use to go to work. Hope I have somewhere to use them before the challenge ends.

If you are wondering what the heck a nutcracker does on the floor, that’s was my daughter’s contribution for the picture. She really wanted him to be on it. Latter she interviewed him. She’s been in a reporter mood lately.
