Just the Ticket!

I bought these boots for my daughter for Christmas. She's never been much of a hiker, but I've always thought that that might be because she's never had a decent pair of hiking boots. So our plan was to buy her the boots that would get her out on the trail. She also has a fairly big foot for a girl (size 10+), so deals on boots that size are harder to come by. Christmas Day she opened a present from her husband, a very stylish pair of black women's dress boots, and we thought uh-oh, our boots are going to look pretty mundane. So while she was in boot mode, we handed her our gift. She opened it and went crazy with profuse appreciation (her poor husband couldn't understand, and neither could we, as she tossed his dress boots aside), couldn't wait to try them on, and was very happy to announce that they fit perfectly and WERE perfect. We tried to explain that they might need a break-in period on the trail, etc., but she said, they're ready to go and perfect for what she needs them for. They're so good looking, she's planning to wear them to work! Her job takes her to dusty, dirty, muddy construction sites and it's been a quandary for her what footwear to take on such days. In a year of trying, she hasn't found anything that was ideal. These boots are just the ticket! (It remains to be seen whether we can talk her into hiking in them.)
