Boot Weather

The view from my office window:

The clouds! They’re eating the buildings! I feel like I’m in, “Howl’s Moving Castle” or, “The Neverending Story” where the shadows/darkness start taking over the world.

I love the weather though, since I have the misfortune of falling in love with shoes that aren’t meant for the tropics. Today’s just so drizzly and gray, it’s perfect for my mid-calf canvas boots.

This would make it the 3rd time I’ve worn these shoes since I bought them at that Korean retail surplus store 2 months ago. Technically, not an ukay-ukay find, but the 300php price tag puts them under that category.

Reasons why they’re made of awesome:

  • sneaker-type soles = comfy
  • suede and buckle detail
  • fleece lining
  • purple skulls & crossbones print 😀

If I’m going to be in a children’s fantasy novel, at least my feet look the part haha.

    1. It’s along the Mandaluyong City hall rotonda. The store sign says PC Brokers, but don’t be fooled. There be cheap korean swaggage inside.
