I’ll be honest: I absolutely hate shopping for shoes. It’s always so difficult to find a pair that is:
-1- Not ridiculously expensive
-2- Feels comfortable
-3- Seems solid enough to survive at least one year of normal wear
So I walked into the first shoe store – which I will not name, but it’s a popular one – and basically everything was of poor quality and 90% was uncomfortable as Hell. I don’t do the whole “breaking in” approach with shoes. Because let’s face it: there is no guarantee that an uncomfortable shoe will ever become comfortable. It either fits nicely or it doesn’t.
I had my eyes set on one pair that felt quite alright, which was bang on budget at 70€ (priced down from 90€). But then this random girl snatched them right in front of my face as I was about to take the box to buy them. I will skip the whole drama that unfolded next. So to cut a long story short: I went to the store across the street while mumbling to myself “I didn’t even like them anyway.” And that’s when I found this pair of lovely Scapa booties!
I tried them on and they fit like a glove. They were well around my budget too, with a price of 75€ (priced down from 150€! wow). Definitely a good deal! Even better than the shoes I didn’t get from the other store, which had a smaller discount and were synthetic; while these are real leather.
Yay for a good find! I can’t wait to wear them!
