        Thirded–best pair yet! And–definitely black jeans with those:-)) I have never in my life wanted a pair of cowboy boots–but I do now. Those come in women’s sizes? (6US, 23Jap…;-))

          Sure, they do – if you don’t mind dropping 2K on footwear! (I think that’s about what my car is worth…)

            I got mine on eBay at considerably less than that!

    Wow!
    I would urge you to wear skull boots with BLACK jeans in future!

      Definately need a pair of black jeans they do.
      But they are truly a pair of kick-ass boots. I like.

    Good thing I am not your co-worker–all I would do would be to gaze at your boots. They are very hypnotic up close which would mean I would always be in your way. Best to give those to me as I work alone at home.

    Is Liberty Boot a subsidiary of Liberty U? From the end of their doctrinal statement: “The unsaved will then be raised and judged according to their works and separated forever from God in hell, once their portraits are taken for the boots.”

    You don’t actually walk to work in those, do you? I can’t imagime they have much traction on the ice, and the snow would ruin them unless you also have some fancy custom-made pointy-toed shoe condoms. OTOH, I’m with Ben: these are good ones. You’ll make a convert out of me yet.

    And if you lose your job as a biology professor, they would also work great in a career as a Mexican drug gang leader.

    How do I get some of those green spiked tassels on the toe?

    I almost bought that same pair at Boot Star in L.A.

    Damn, they’re fine.

    I’d be too afraid of spilling chemicals on them to ever wear such footwear to the lab.

    Utterly heinous.

    Available in size 7, do you think?

    There is no corner tight enough for a roach to escape those boots!

    Has the Atlas of Creation been harrassing the grown-up books again?

    I really need those boots. Care to donate to the needy?

    Any significance to the number? I can’t think of any. In fact 62, 31*2, It’s one of the most uninteresting numbers in the range 1-100. I stand ready to be corrected.
