I love surprises, and Art really hit the mark with these boots from Off Broadway Shoes (The Market Place in Irvine). They have a spunky Victorian meets Gothic style and are super comfortable. In addition to that, they were marked down several times (ultimately to $25 bucks) -- sizes were limited, but apparently size 10 isn't as popular. They are brown (which goes with everything I own), and the *kicker* is that they are 100% man made. What a score! Thanks, Honey!
