Das Boot

So there's this boot...
 
...and it's real.
 
Red Wing is a little town in Minnesota that is home to the famous Red Wing boots. Their boots are high-quality, made in America, and Rion loves the boots he has from them. Yada-yada-yada. What's really important is that they made a very large boot. Like the little old lady really could live in this shoe. What's even cooler is that it is all made with real leather. Bummer for the cows and pigs, but a total win for the geek tourist like me.
We spent longer than necessary in the Red Wing store/museum, and Rion actually came out with his second pair of Red Wings and I came out with my first. Thanks to his mom. Thanks mom. 
Nick, Rion's brother, was jealous and thought this shoe might look fly. He didn't get very far.

Could your shoes/Rion's shoes be any cuter? Holy man. I want. I also want to climb into the big boot. Although it might be hard to get out afterward, it would be fun for photos!
