Here we are. These are my new riding boots (okay, not exactly new anymore, but they take aaages to wear in) and they hurt like hell. Wearing them much makes it better though, and that is why I'm now slumped down the couch with the effing things on. All for the sake of the arts. These are, hands down, the best boots you could ever get your hands on. The Louboutins of riding boots. Köenigs Reitstiefel. Mine are custom hand made in Germany, and I got them for my birthday. They are even in patent to make them more shiny. We like that! I am totally in love with them, even if they have caused me a LOT of blood. Mwah!
