I am going through garden shoes, the backless slip on kinds like crazy. Flip flops, tennis shoes, ankle high rubber like boots ... it's like a shoe store graveyard around here. I've been through several pairs of rubber knee high boots and I really just don't care for them much at all. I bought another pair yesterday that come up to my calves are easier to slip on and off but darn it, I want a pair of nice, long lasting leather boots that are for women. All I have come across in the stores are the bulky steel-toe type for men. I am not opposed to wearing a man's shoe but I've got a size 10 foot (I know, I know) and add to that a huge honking steel toe and someone is going to get hurt - ME! I have a hard enough time tripping over steps and stumps and clumps and cinder blocks tied around goats ... I can't add more to that mix. Where can I find a pair of leather boots that are mid-calf, have the finger hoops for pulling them up and will last for many, many years? Light weight would be nice but I'd rather have leather than synthetic mainly because I'm thinking they will last a lot longer. And I don't want laces - too many small spots for goat poop and dirt to hide. They don't have to be lined-it's not that cold here. Just waterproof ... Any ideas?
