After what feels like forever, my Frye lace-up boots are finally home. (Ah! The root of all this madness!) I got them almost 2 weeks ago but I had to send them out to the shoe repair shop for some much needed TLC. (I'd polish them myself but I just didn't know where to start!) When I first saw them, there was definitely no doubt that they were in used vintage condition. They still look vintage and used (Which is actually the point) but they look undeniably a lot "happier" and "healthier" now. The cobbler said they have a couple more thousand miles in them.
Welcome home, babies!
