Ever since I saw the film Little Miss Sunshine the year it came out (2006) the little red cowboy boots got stuck in my head. Look at Abigail Breslin being a cutie and wearing them:
Cool stuff right? Never mind that she’s like, 9 or something. The boots looked amazing to me and being a red shoe addict I knew that one day I’d have to have a pair of them.
I had been looking all over – vintage stores in America, Amsterdam, Ebay, you name it… but nothing was available. Until the weekend I spent in Brighton, that is. I was walking along one of the streets and looking at the shop windows of all the vintage shops they’ve got there and there they were. the next day I went back and asked what was the size. Surprisingly they fit! A snug fit, but a fit nonetheless. The guy in the shop told me they had been in the shop for a year and they never fit anyone. I was the lucky one it seems! They’re a bit beaten up but I do think that adds some charm to them, as they’re good quality, real leather boots.
They are perfect for relaxed days out running errands:
