My Kids. My Boots. My Problems.

My Kids. My Boots. My Problems.


As a mom, I like to tease my kids about how they are growing up too fast. It’s halfheartedly a joke and half completely serious. Everyone says that babies become children then graduate then become adults all in the blink of an eye. It’s true and sometimes it is hard to swallow. Each day, my almost-teenager stands next to me and tells me that she is just as tall as me. I’m afraid to blink and find that she is no longer my little one.

So let’s change the subject. (Sort of.) Can we talk about boots again? Yes. Again. I know I have an addiction to them, but I have an unrelated problem that is complicating things. “How?”, you ask. It has spread by four feet. Let me explain.

It is bad enough that my girls are getting bigger and growing up and difficult that one has decided to steal my shoes, but now the boots. Really, kid? I can get over the shoes, but my boots. Sigh. Say it isn’t so! I know you’re growing up; you don’t need to rub it in. To be fair, she comes by boot-theft honestly. Need I remind you that I recently admitted to stealing boots from a scarecrow? For her clothes and footwear aren’t about fashion. She just likes to feel natural.

“They’re comfy when I walk, mom.”

“I know, dear. I know they are. Once upon a time, they were MY boots.”

But that is only half of the story. My fashionista has already told me that my new Lugz Tallulah boots are so awesome that she’s taking them as soon as I grow out of them. Then she realized that my feet won’t grow any more so she rephrased and told me she’ll claim them as soon as SHE grows into them. She’s already been testing them out and told me how comfortable they are.

“I know, dear. I know they are. Once upon a time, they were MY boots.”

Someday they will be mine again. Thank goodness I have my Sophia boots to get me by.

I already own black boots (my Lugz Sophia ones that I love!) as well as red clog boots, so I decided to go with brown ones that have black accents. They are versatile and can go with a variety of colors! In case you’re curious, they are available in combos that focus on Red Brown, Golden Wheat and Black as the primary color. That will be important for you to know and I’ll explain why in a minute.

What is so special about the Lugz Tallulah boots. Let me tell you a little about them. Just like the Lugz Sophia boots, they are incredibly cozy. For that matter, every pair of Lugz footwear that we own can make that same claim! Sporting a soft fur lining, these boots are not only warm, but they are also very fashionable! Did I mention they are also affordable? Lugz Tallulah boots run under $75 per pair! Oh, and you probably wouldn’t have guessed it, but they are pretty comfortable. I don’t think I have said that yet.

Now let’s get back to why I said knowing the available colors is important. Lugz will be participating in our 49 days of giveaways where the winner will get t select a pair of ladies’ Lugz Tallulah boots in their choice of color! Keep an eye out for the giveaway to launch soon!

  1. Oh I instantly fell in love with those Lugz boots! I want a pair myself. They look insanely comfortable and to me that is most important. But I also love how stylish they look too! I’m very excited about that price range too! Most boots I like usually range over $150 a pair. So this is a much happier mama!

    These are so cute and I would totally nap in them. 😉 Seriously though, my feet are always cold. Warm them up and it’s snoozefest.

  3. Aubrey says:

    Those look awesome. Super comfy and stylish.

  4. They sure do look cozy and warm. I wish I could find boots like this in my size!

  5. Ana says:

  6. Roxy says:

    I borrow from my mom all the time and vice versa! She even buys her shoes a half size up so that I can fit them! Mind you I’m 26….so something tells me your daughter will always be stealing your shoes too. Lol


    1. Nicole says:

      LOL, Roxy. If she is the same size as me when she’s 26, I’m going to borrowing HER shoes!

  7. Can I get those for myself? I love them!

  8. dawn says:

    i loveee them. if i still lived in michigan or somewhere with a cool climate I would totally rock the ones your daughter is wearing. They look warm and very stylish.

  9. Marcie W. says:

    My oldest daughter (11) and I wear the same size shoe and often share. I never mind, so long as the shoes she borrows are age appropriate. Both she and I would love boots like these!

  10. Barrie says:

    Oh yeah…my teen would totally “borrow” my boots and I’d never see them again! Bunmer too because these look like comfy, warm boots!

  11. Cat Delgado says:

    Sharing boots with my daughter- such is the fate of my boots too! These Lugz Tallulah boots are so pretty and well made that I would have to share them with my daughter!

  12. SANDY CAIN says:

    Oh, these boots are awesome~! Comfy, warm, beautiful, affordable, and a super tread so no slipping on the ice or snow. What more could you ask for? PLus, LUGZ last forever!

  13. Mimi says:

    These are the kind of boots you wear even when there’s no snow! They look perfect for Minnesota winters!

  14. Sandy Cain says:

    LOVE these boots! They’d have to pry them off my cold, dead feet before I’d give them up!

  15. These are really nice. They look warm and comfortable too!

  16. Teounna says:

  19. Elizabeth says:

    Love these Boots! They look so comfortable & stylish…I think it’s great that you’ve shared yours with your daughter 🙂 I would do the same!!

  20. Sarah L says:

    We had another 5 inches of snow and I need some new boots. These would be perfect.

  21. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    I love the boots!! I also know how you feel about those once being your boots. And they do grow up in a blink of an eye. My youngest daughter graduated from high school last year and started at Ole Miss this past fall and I am having a hard time still believing it. But she wears my clothes and shoes a lot and now that she’s at ole miss, 3 hours away, when she leaves going back I know a lot of my clothes will be packed up going with her probably never to return to my closet. It happens.

  22. Pam Flynn says:

    I love Lugz and I’ve introduced them to my daughter and granddaughter! They love them too!

  23. Jeffrey says:

    I think that it’s fine for the children to borrow each other’s shoes as long as they take proper care of the shoes and remember to return the shoes.
