Boss Got Boots

Gibbs: Put 'em on. You can't work a field in high heels. [smiles]

I think my new Gibbs haircut might be lucky.  I found boots.The rubber boots I have been waiting for since my old ones died.  Here is the beginning of their demise.

I had two requirements, That they be waterproof and not slick on the bottom.  Today after almost a year of leaky boots and then none at all, I found them...two pair...may they last twenty years like the last pair.

The pink ones are for easy spotting in case I  get lost.  Hubby can find me easier.

I asked Hubby which pair.  He looked at black and camouflage.  I asked if he liked these.  You could tell he was struggling for the right words.  "They're all gonna get muddy," he safely answered.  I pointed out he could find me better with the pink ones if I fell over somewhere.  He gave in and said get both.  I think what he was really thinking was he will only have to see the pink ones half the time.
One pair is taller so I can wade deeper into whatever I decide to wade and my feet will be dry.
Hubby can't say much about footwear.  Look at his red flannel plaid slippers in this photo.

HEY, Y'ALL I GOT BOOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Now, it's almost flip flop weather.

Horses! Very nice. Now you are styling.

Nice boots! Both pairs are very stylish. You will look great no matter what you are wading through. You might want to keep that hair style (still trying to imagine it).

Those boots are the bomb! Love'em! I have been looking for chore boots for sometime and haven't been lucky in finding something I like. These, I would buy in a heartbeat! And might I add, those boots look like they are ready for an adventure!

RoeH said...

I wish I had a reason to wear boots. I'd get some like those.

Irene said...

I envy you both pair and wish I had an excuse to wear some like it. I do love the pink ones and have a jacket that would look real good with them. For sure nobody would miss me if I got lost. Not that I would very quickly here in town, but it's the thought that counts. Enjoy wading in the creek and stomping around in the mud. xox

Sandra said...

Linda Wildenstein said...

Gail,

I love both pairs of boots. Especially the fact that they have solid non skid bottoms.

Your first mission Gibbs is to wade through water!!

Farm Girl said...

I am so glad you finally got boots and then two pair. Your are in tall cotton now Gail.
I love my boots too. My favorite kind of footwear for wading.

DFW said...

Woo Hoo! Love them both.

I love both pair! As much as you're outside you need two pair. :) blessings, marlene

Sue said...

Perfect boots! I love that the pink ones have horses on them.

=)

LindaG said...

Boots are always needed! Can you tell what kind they are?
I think they look neat. :-)

However, I could not have chosen pink. That's just me. ;-)
I hope they last at least 20 years!

Ruth Dixon said...

They are very cute. As a matter of fact, I've had the pink pair. I don't know you're level of wear, but mine only lasted a few months. That is in Oregon coast rain and mud, so you may be different. I did love them, tho. Now I just buy the old-fashioned heavier duty black rubber boots (not Mucks, just rubber boots) and I can get a full year out of them for $20.
