Today is a sad day. I've been in denial about it for a while but I think my poor, beloved River Island chelsea boots may be coming to the end of their life. Forgive this slightly ridiculous, emotional post dedicated to a pair of shoes. I just love them that much, okay you guys.
I've had them reheeled countless times, worn them pretty much every day for a year, and well and truly loved them to death. Needless to say, as a result, they're looking pretty worse for wear. I've had to cover countless scuffs with black Sharpie pen. They are a shadow of their former self. I know I'll continue to wear them until they fall apart, ugly as they are. It will be with a heavy heart that I finally say goodbye to these worn-out old bastards.
