I'm in heaven

Since I visited B in NYC in October of 2007, I have really wanted a pair of Frye Dorado boots.  However, as a student their price tag was always way too high to buy from Frye or Zappos or whoever.  After 1.5 years of an ebay saved search, I found a brand new pair for half-off the list price!  I have worn them almost every day since I got them in the mail on Friday.  Aren't they lovely?  

Frye was founded in 1863 and is the oldest continuously operating shoe company in the US. Frye boots were worn by Union and Confederate soldiers during America's Civil War, as well as soldiers in the Spanish- American War including Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders. By mail order, the company supplied thousands of WWII servicemen with Frye Wellingtons, known as Jet Boots.  Frye boots traveled the world on the feet of U.S. soldiers during the war - even General Patton wore a pair. 

Looks like I now have a piece of history.  :)
