Thanks, Suntiger for the prompt to give my holding zone some love. The seasonal switch is a good time to excavate and evaluate what’s in there. I plan to tackle it one category at a time, and outfit lab anything I am on the fence about.

Today, it’s boots! As much as I love boots, they aren’t really practical for my WFH life. These are all tall boots, which I need skinny jeans or skirts for, and I don’t really wear skinnies or skirts these days...

#1-2 Frye (engineer?) 2004: These were originally “brown/black” a cognac with black distressing, until a bad cobbler tried to overdye them chocolate brown (he also removed the brass Frye plate from the arch where he did not need to re-sole) Anyway... i love the almond toe, low heel, and mid-calf height. They have been re-soled at least a dozen times. I rarely reach for these; should I keep them?

#3-4 Guess cognac leather (2007-8?) Something about the funky vibe I just love. I don’t like the inside zipper, and I don’t mind the heel. I just never wear them anymore. I don’t think I’ve worn them since 2012...

#5-6: Vince suede knee boots. These were mis-marked for $37 last year so I snapped them up! I was such a wet winter, I only wore them once. Are they different enough from the Guess boots that I could justify keeping both? Or should one of them go?
