These were special custom boots I had made nearly twenty years ago for an event, they’re an amazing copy of a museum pair by Francois Pinet. Sadly, they were trashed in a horrific riding accident I was in and they’ve been sitting in a closet ever since. I would shudder when I touched them, the muscle memory was so strong. I firmly believe that things retain energy (clothing, houses, jewelry, books, etc. ) so it’s time to taken them to my shoe person to restore them and start over…because they’ll look great with the new day dress we’re making!
