d'oh.

No boots for me. Both of the places I tried looked at me like I was insane - they don't make equestrian riders in my size, and therefore they don't make gear (like the dressage boots I wanted) in my size either. Or something like that.

On the plus side, I finally returned empties top the beer store, for the first time since they started taking non-beer bottles. No one in the store was there to buy beer - only drop off empties. I came away with almost $10, and the guy behind me at at least twice as many bottles as I did. Weird.

10.5 to 11. A little more digging shows boots for men in my size, just at well over twice the price of the boots I went in asking about.

Right. I expected a higher price (though not necessarily that much more), but the "they don't make them in your size" had me go "no freaking way" (as I have a girlfriend who has feet in a similar frame and if they make women's boots that large, they make men's.

They do - I know quite a few male riders and your feet are not particularily large!!!

I will be happy to help when I come back - should be no problem!

Do call Nick's Shoe Repair on Dupont, it'll be worth that much at least.
