Privilege Boots from Taos ~ WanderGear Wednesday
I’m the Queen of Packing Light. And as such, I advocate for only carrying the most practical of shoes on a trip.
But even I know there are times when you need a dress shoe at your destination. It’s a short weekend getaway, for example, and you’ve got goin’ out plans. In such a case it’s easy enough to wear your nicer (heavier) shoes on the plane and pack a light pair in your carry-on luggage.
That’s what I did a couple of weekends ago when I spent five days on the east coast.
With me came my Privilege Boots from Taos Footwear.
The made-in-Portugal Privilege boots are leather with a wax finish. Nice, for sure. But what makes them stand out is the raised floral embroidery finish. Gorgeous, eh? And the cut is trim enough that I can wear my pants either inside or outside of the boot.
My feet and legs are pretty forgiving in that I can wear most any shoe for an extended period of time without pain and the same is true for these. I wore these most of the time during my east coast trip and they (and my legs and feet) held up well.
Though they look black, the ones pictured above are Midnight Blue. The Privileges also come in Brown, Forest and Spice Red.
What I Love:
- The raised floral embroidery
- Easy to remove at airport security
- They’re cowboy boots, yeehaw!
Not So Much:
- Won’t fit in your carry-on (but it’s OK, I wouldn’t expect them to!)
- Weekend getaways
- Trips to city destinations where you need a dressier shoe
