Until then, I will be rotating through other boots that I can sell as worksafe. Today, it's the pointy-toed skull buckle boots. They're fairly comfortable, if slow to put on and take off. The heel on these boots approximates the angle of my orthotics, which I can't wear with them.
The pointy-toed boots added to the leather hat and the long black coat today make me feel all Deadwoody. I feel a sudden craving for a big moustache.
