saint laurent western-stitched boot: a review


So deliberately engineered and well-constructed is the Saint Laurent Western-Stitched Boot that trying it on was like slipping my foot into the muscular gullet of a very sexy anaconda, a rigid canal down which my foot was squeezed and then popped into place, like a dislocated joint finding a socket. This is less a boot than a corrective device, used to adjust the ordinary, utilitarian posture I generally use for walking around into a position I could never voluntarily attain, an aggressive two-point cantilever of bosom and rear end that turned the three steps I needed to reach the mirror to look at the boots into the incendiary opening of a lap dance, even in jeans that were not baggy in the ways necessary to be boyfriend but just baggy, from three days of grocery shopping and laundry and taking the kids to school, and a down parka.
