And when I say kid I mean that when I went to college I still kind of thought I might be able to be Indiana Jones-lite. I have the awesomeness and good looks. And I have qualifications to work in a museum. Same ballpark. Last year I bought a hat for hiking and kayaking in the Adirondacks. I knew full-well what I was doing too - it looks 75% like Indiana Jones's hat. Except whereas Harrison Ford looks cool as fudge, I look like a dick in a silly hat (ironically my wife put it on and looked ****ing fantastic). Those boots up there are the very same boots he wears as well. I genuinely did not know that when I was online shopping for shoes until I stumbled over the boots above. I was looking for boots to wear all the time that were comfortable that I could also just keep on to go places.

I know that if I wear both the boots and the hat that I automatically become some sort of cosplay mega-twat. Especially as my favorite color is brown and I wear quite a few pairs of brown oxford shirts and brown jeans/pants. So I switched my desires to cowboy boots thinking that was sensible and veer me away from fanboydom. And I cannot pull of Dr. Martin's. At all.
I almost bought these and I still might but not until next Spring for a warm weather boot.
Red Wing Model 8111 Iron Ranger

BTW, I like good boots. Boots are all I wear. I haven't owned a pair of tennis shoes since high school. This thread happened to come at the end of a period of several months during which I have been researching and shopping for a new pair of boots. I bought the "house" in which I currently live over the course of a weekend, but quality boots are an investment and time should be taken to insure a good purchase.

We had a huge argument about it followed by a brief fight the outcome of which isn't important.

It was the last straw. She bought a Vuitton handbag, my brain has thankfully blanked out the cost, went back the next day and bought a matching purse because the one she had didn't 'go'.

No. Some of us only carry a black purse, never carry a handbag and only own about five pairs of shoes, two of which are thongs (flip flops) and one pair of boots (cowboy style strangely enough).
