Outfit | Lace Sweater, Checks & My Old Slouchy Boots - Retro Sonja
October 22, 2013

Hi dears!

EN: I own these boots for at least 8 years now. I remember buying them together with my mom when I was still in high school. The girl helping us in the store adviced me to take a size bigger. Something I still regret to have done. I actually have very tiny feet. They’re half a size smaller than the smallest woman’s size in most of Europe, which makes shopping for shoes very hard. But back in the days when I bought these boots, I was still growing and I never had an idea of what my shoe size was. Now, I have these boots one and a half size too big and I have to wear 2 pairs of regulars socks and 1 pair of thick socks in them for them to fit well. That’s why I can only wear them in fall or winter, because you don’t want to wear 3 pairs of socks in spring or summer, haha! Despite all of that, I still like these boots. They go with almost everything and they’re very easy to walk on! And… because of the 3 pairs of socks, they are very warm on the cold days as well!

NL: Deze laarzen heb ik al minstens 8 jaar. Ik kan me nog herinneren dat ik ze kocht samen met mijn moeder toen ik nog op de middelbare school zat. Het meisje dat ons hielp in de winkel adviseerde me om een maat groter te nemen. Dat deed ik dus en daar heb ik nu nog spijt van. Ik heb namelijk hele kleine voeten, maat 35 1/2. Dat maakt winkelen voor schoenen dus best wel lastig. Toen ik deze schoenen kocht was ik nog in de groei en had ik nooit echt een idee van wat nou mijn schoenmaat was. Daarom heb ik nu dus deze laarzen anderhalve maat te groot en moet ik er 2 paar normale sokken in aan en 1 paar dikke sokken (die ik dan ook nog zo onder m’n voet vouw) om te zorgen dat ze goed passen. Daardoor kan ik ze dus alleen in de herfst of de winter dragen, want je wilt echt geen 3 paar sokken aan in de lente of zomer, haha! Ondanks dat ben ik nog steeds gek op deze laarzen. Ze passen bijna overal bij en ze lopen super fijn! En… door de 3 paar sokken, zijn ze ook nog eens heerlijk warm op hele koude dagen!
