I personally don't like boots much...worst are the Ugg boots. If anything can turn a beautiful calf look like an elephant stump, the uggs can.
I do have a couple of uggs - mind you...so last night I up-cycled one of them into a pair of shoes that I would happily wear every day with jeans :)
These also had a brand label at the back of the heels, visible brands are my other pet peeve. So I crocheted a small heart to cover the offensive :)
