Dope Boot Review
Guh! Buying shoes… seriously, it’s the age-old struggle between comfort and style. You know the one.
UGLY BUT COMFY
STYLISH BUT PAINFUL
I’ve been searching everywhere this season for a comfy AND cool pair of boots for around town. It’s cooling down, a little rain here and there… something to wear with jeans. Loyal readers know that I certainly lean more towards comfort than style, but DARN IT, this time I want both!! Anyhow check these dope boots out!
I was pretty surprised to see that these boots are made by Clarks of England. Yea, the shoes your dad wears!! CLARKS! No way. I swear, the hipsters slinging Joe at Scout would love these… and you know what, they’d be correct! The boots are very cool! Of utmost importance to a tender-foot like me is that they are light, flexible, comfortable, in a nutshell, delightful! No break in, ready to wear, I put them on and wore them out of the store. This is the info from Clarks’ website regarding the style known as the Clarkdale Bud ($170):
A lace-up boot that matches a rugged profile with innovative comfort tech. Its upper is crafted from full grain leather, and its all leather linings and sock feel great against the feet. A rubber outsole and leather midsole allow it to have both a long-lasting durability and a classic look.
Blah blah blah! Picked ‘em up at Takkens Shoes and Boots in downtown SLO for $170.00. So happy! I tried a few different boots on before I settled on these. They also come in black which was frankly very tempting as well! Ask for Erik. Great guy, great store!
I can’t believe I finally bridged the gap between comfort and style, or better said, Clarks of England bridged that gap and I found them at Takkens! Give ‘em a shot, you won’t regret it!
