Many of you know I recently went back to work after being laid off since December. You also know I work in construction, a male dominated world. Well I am in need of a new pair of work boots-not an easy thing to find with a size 7 woman's foot.
My current boots are a pair of Timberland Pro, and they are made for women, cute, and were super comfortable-for about a week. I know things are different when I spend 8 hours on my feet walking an unfinished concrete construction site, but when I take off my boots it takes hours for the feeling to come back to my pinkie toes. So when I (finally) started to see the titanium toes through the leather, I started my journey for the next pair.
The few times I have found women's work boots in the stores, they are overpriced, and uncomfortable. Then I ran across these boots and my heart skipped a beat! I am a little hesitant because buying online you can't try them on, but being designed by a woman for a woman is promising. Plus they're so dam cute! So I have been debating with myself do I buy the pink, or go with the conservative tan ones? (I may work construction but I am a girly girl and love to express my feminine side even in that masculine role.) Then I got the best advice from SPF. She told me to stop worrying what anybody else may think of me wearing pink work boots, and be true to myself-buy the pair I like the best. I must be doing something right with that girl. I mean really-that's about the best advice I could have got.
Isn't it amazing watching our kids metamorphis right in front of our eyes?
