Daniel Boone Was A...

Fashion Icon. At least to me. I watched his show as a kid and loved his cool leather fringed clothing. While other girls dreamed of Barbies and unicorns, I dreamed of one day having my own pair of fringed boots.



About 8 years ago I decided to make my dreams come true and I ordered this lace up pair. They looked good, they smelled good, and I could creep through the house as quiet as an Indian. But they just wouldn't stay up. It drove me crazy so I sent them back and settled for...
A simple moccasin. Which I have loved, but my six year old self still wants some dad gum fringed boots so....

I decided to go all out and ordered this pair. I know, can you stand it? They came, they look good, they smell good and they stay up. My unicorn has arrived...almost. Is there too much of a good thing? Too much fringe? Do I look more like Charo less like Daniel Boone?
Option number two. On it's way to me as we speak. The final decision will be made once I have both pairs in my possession and try them on and then ask my husband 62,000 which ones he likes best.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite?

  2. Sissy, you crack me up. Daniel Boone is my college's unofficial mascot. It used to be a huge source of embarrassment; I'm rethinking that now. Love both boots. Oh, decisions. I would do the same thing (ask my husband 62,000 times). I really think you'll only know by trying them on. But I would've never thought Charo about the super fringe-y ones. Good luck and let us know which pair wins!

  3. The first pair is giving me a Chewbaca leg vibe, but probably look great on. I'm partial to the second pair. Keep the ones that make you feel fierce.

  5. I got a pair of these a few years ago, so comfy. I hope the Boone look has a moment this fall.

  9. hahaha, this post made me laugh out loud.
    I like the 2nd pair best - they will elongate the leg and draw the eye upward with the detail. But your hubby will know best ;)
