I'm addicted to shoe polish!

Soooo to import my boots into New Zealand, they have to be so spotless.. very sterile and clean! So my dad helped me pick out some saddle soap, leather lotion.. and brown shoe polish.

Let's just say I had a little bit too much fun.. I spent over 3 hours on my boots this morning, and 2 more this afternoon just polishing them up really nicely!

I want black shoe polish to do my saddle when I get back... >: )

They are Cobalt XR Ariat boots. They have "technology" in the sole that reduces stress on joints and makes every step airy light :) Good for my knees, I could stay in them all day haha. And they were only $97 at the time. Best investment I've made.

Well don't those look fancy now!

I won't show you my boots. At the moment they're submerged in two inches of water with mud and poop caked to every inch of them. Darn weather...

be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Haha mine were worse at first!! I hadn't cleaned them in over 2 and a half years mud, poop, hair, sweat, scratches from kitty, scuffs from the dang halfie dragging me on the rail. But in 5 hours, they're brand new
