I ordered a pair of these lovely Saharas in the Chocolate Shearling model:
After spending more hours than I wish to accept debating which style to get (and therefore condemning myself to living without the rest), I reminded myself that I no longer live in California and that there will be ICE and SNOW in very short order. Then I put in my order and waited, with great anticipation, for them to show up on my doorstep.
Then the happy day arrived. I tore open the packaging and slipped my foot into the downy comfort of the shearling Sahara. Then I took my babies for a walk. For the first time in my life (really) I may have been a little sad that there was no ice outside. This shoe is solid, well-constructed and has all kids of sole. Honest, that thing could keep a grip on the slickest of streets. Furthermore, I cannot describe how soft and lovely this bootie is. The leather itself is amazing, supple and soft, and the shearling….oh the shearling. Typically I do not care for shearling, but this stuff is heaven.
True to Bernard Rudofsky’s original creed, there was a special place for every part of my foot. Each of my toes felt quite comfortable. My ankle bone had somewhere to go. A great sigh of relief may have even escaped the oft-tortured part of the back of my ankle as it was enrobed in the delicious chocolate.
Here is a candid of my Happy Foot:
So people, one more time, don’t forget to comment on the ORIGINAL post (not on this one) to enter yourself to win a pair of these babies. You won’t reget the keystrokes. I promise.
