I Want These Boots

These are too. much. fun. A boot designed to look like a sandal over a sock! *squeal*

I love Robert Clergerie shoes. I bought my first (okay, only) pair in the 1980s at a thrift store in the Detroit area. They cost me about $10. They were yellow suede. I remember my mother telling me that Clergerie shoes have a steel shank that runs from the front of the shoe all the way through the heel, so the heel will never break off. Quality!

And how can you not love a man whose name is pronounced row-BARE?

Thank you,, for selling Clergerie shoes, many of them at a discount. These particular boots are still out of my league, but I'll swoop in like a hawk the minute they're reduced. This is the beauty of Internet shopping.

Row-bare definitely has a unique ring to it!

But I cannot imagine being pregnant and standing, sitting or shuffeling in these babies for any length of time.

But the concept is orignial.

Hope you are well, K.

Er, good point. That makes me feel better about being unwilling (and unable) to shell out over $600 for them.

These scare the hell out of me. They remind me of the fashion (socks and sandals) at one of my Oklahoma family reunions!
