I really like the mountaineering boot look this year. Trouble is I don't have an extra $80 bucks to blow on a new pair. I remembered my mum saved an old pair of my leather boots. They were excellent quality (FYRE), so I decided to give them a makeover. Great thing is, it only cost me $20.00 big ones.
