the older, the better.

My appreciation for old, well established companies has grown tremendously over the past couple of years. I work for a company that is over 100 years old & I truly recognize how a company with a long history is something that is to be revered & taken seriously, especially now a days... there is a reason they have been around so long. I absolutely believe there is a direct correlation with history to quality.

I have now had my Frye boots for almost 4 years, {top images} and they seriously just get better with age. {Frye has been around since 1863.}I take them in to get cleaned up & re-soled at the end of the winter season & it keeps them truckin along beautifully. I spoke with a woman a month or two ago with similar boots on & she said she has had her Frye boots for 30 years now! wow. I love to think that I'll have these boots moving my kids into college one day. I work the windows in them, I dress them up & down, I play in them, & I take them outdoors. They are quality.

I just recently purchased these Trenton rainboots on sale in matte grey. I legitimately NEEDed rainboots for puddles/rain to & from work at the train station & didn't want Hunter boots that I saw everywhere. My old ones were on their last leg & so, I stumbled upon Trenton... they are awesome & have been around since 1891. wow, again. I am impressed with their quality, so far, & love that they are a bit different. Check them out... you can read about their history here.

There is no denying that I have an obsession with boots. It is a problem. However, I think they are quite possibly my favorite thing to aquire & indulge in. Cheers! :)

Happy Happy Wednesday, halfway there people. :)
