Apparel Watch...Abington Hiker Boot
As I was browsing the web “window” shopping the other day I stumbled upon these boots on urbanoutfitters.com. They kind of just jumped off the screen at me. The light brown color of the boots and the two-colored shoe laces were so ostentatious that I, honestly, couldn’t take my eyes off of them. I called the Urban Outfitters store in Bloomington, IN to see if they had any in stock but, unfortunately they did not. They suggested that, if I wanted a pair, I order them online. Priced at $195, I guess I should’ve figured that, since they are limited edition. Here’s the low down on the boot straight from the website:
