DSW Boot Review + Michael’s OOTD

boots 3

Hey Guys & Dolls!!

As I teased in my previous post, I’m part of a HUGE DSW shoe giveaway this month. DSW was kind enough to send me a pair of shoes to review, and in the spirit of the season of giving I picked a men’s pair for my husband, Michael. These Aston Grey boots are a little rugged but overall very handsome, just like Michael. They’re a great pair because with his pants covering them they look like dress boots, but the buckles add a little something so they aren’t so dressy that they’d look weird with his current fave outfit: relaxed jeans, a Henley and this hooded vest we searched high & low for (I found it at kohls.com). He said they fit a little snug so if he picked them up in-store he’d move up a size, but he still loves them. The boots have a convenient side zipper for easy on-off to which Michael said “COOOOOL I hate lacing up my boots”.

When he went to put them on today, tell me why he still laced them up? *sigh* boys….

    My grandmother gave me a pair of boots a few years back and I wore them all the time. I loved them. They were dancing boots, designed for country-western style dance, and they looked great with tights and oversized sweaters. Unfortunately, I took them on a trip with me and my shampoo exploded in my suitcase. The boots were ruined! When my mother found out how sad I was, she gave me her pair, which were one size up but otherwise exactly the same. It was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done.

    Mikey is freakin’ awesome. You’re such a lucky lass. And he’s pretty darn lucky too, to have a wife that would give up the opportunity to get a free pair of shoes for him. That’s true love.
