Soles for the Soul – Shoe du jour

Did I really need another pair of boots? No. But I attended the Covet show in Chicago and couldn’t resist.

  • They are black and white cowhair, so each pair is truly unique.
  • They are well designed and fit like a glove.
  • They are bad-ass cool.

More importantly, the main reason I bought these Alcala boots was because of the story behind them. Linda Alcala is the designer and owner of Alcala Boutique in Chicago. Her story is so inspiring. Don’t think she had it easy… nothing was handed to her. She struggled and had to scrape everything together and prove to her family and the industry that she not only could design her own line, but also be a successful business woman. She is truly an inspiration…and that is why I bought these boots.Alcala_cow Richard_cow_hair

Who knew soles could be good for one’s soul.
