Moon Boots!

Form and function, right? Well, where I currently live, the conditions are icy, snowy, subzero – like the winter x-games on my sidewalk. So I had no choice – I needed snow boots…or moon boots…or, as I’ve been affectionately calling them – moots!

Harbin boasts shopping malls not only on every corner, but underground, too. I stroll through one when I pass by now and then, and, upon finding one marked OUTLETS – I perused. I have yet to find a thrift store here, but this place was the closest thing. First floor was all shoes, something like forty different vendors with different types of boots and sneakers.

It was love at first sight.

I didn’t try them on, but I did think about them all week. I like to step back before making a purchase – give myself at least 4 days to think about it, let it simmer, mentally match it with everything I own. And if it sticks – it sticks for many good reasons, and, budget permitting, I proceed. These only cost the equivalent of 13USD, but as far as I can tell they’re great quality. #MADEINCHINA. Lined with fake fur, they are cozy and comfy.

I’ll admit that these are not as orthopedic as I like my shoes to be, but, given the harsh conditions out here, I had to compromise. I do have a slice of Dr. Scholl in there, and that makes a difference.

What I love about these – they look sleek, even futuristic. Black goes with everything, but the words on the back add somethin special. I love that the word is love – that sealed the deal for me. All the tread on these acts as a platform, too, which, since I don’t much wear heels, is a fun boost.

I browsed around the internet and found a swanky DSW deal, a fancy Euro lookin moon boot, and a website called moon-boot.com. Go nuts.
