I spent $1100 on Parlanti boots I wear only to show in. I showed exactly zero times last year. So I decided I should get a pair of boots that I will actually wear regularly. And that's just what I did. Oh and also, they were cheaper than my non-custom Parlanti's.
While I had decided to throw away a large sum of money on something pretty ridiculous, I'm still very frugal at heart. So I didn't want to approach the other boot companies who would charge me over $1000 just for the green leather. La Mundial had no up charge for the different color leather. The only additional charges were for the inside patch, the piping, and the trim. Everything else was base price. They actually did the patch for free for me as a thank you for coming back after my debacle. Thanks La Mundial!
They now send emails to you as your boots move through the process of getting made. It's nice to get an update since they do take about 12 weeks to arrive. Ok, enough back ground. I'm sure you want to see the boots!
|They fit like a GLOVE! (special cameo by Pia's fat roll)|
|From the back. You can't tell from this terrible bathroom photo, but the zippers are chocolate brown.|
|My legs looks so long from this angle!|
|The laces are also chocolate brown.|
|I love the square toe, and I'm happy I skipped the toe cap. I think it would have been too busy. I also really love the light colored stitching.|
|I'm not sad that my Mane Jane belt and spur straps match PERFECTLY!|
Can you see it? It kind of looks like a water mark there in the middle. I can assure you, they're going to look much worse once they start bathing horses and walking through mud...
So that's my big news. I got twin pairs of green and gold boots. And LOVE THEM SO MUCH. Who needs a husband and kids? I have green boots!
