I’m not addicted to anything with the exception of boots. I don’t wear high heels, but I wear boots and I have MANY to choose form After I bought my first pair of Old Gringo 7 or 8 years ago I haven’t bought any other brand. I’ve been wearing boots since I was a little girl, I’d wear them all the time , I didn’t care if was in jeans riding my horse or I was wearing shorts ( boots and shorts were NOT A THING in the early 80’s). Now I’m 42, and I have owned many brands and types of boots at some point of my life. Old Gringo is by far the best boot (or shoe ) I’ve ever owned. They are impeccably made, exceedingly comfortable, with no brake in period at all. I know they tend to be higher in price than other brands , but they are worth it! Nearly every time I wear a pair out I get compliments. The Cate is beautifully embroidered with flowers and butterflies, when I’m able to get out I can’t wait to wear them with a summer dress The day they arrived I wore them around the house, just because. Buying them from River Trail Mercantile I saved over $200!!!
