salty winter

Don't you hate it how with snow there always comes salt? My combat boots went totally pussy on me this Friday night somewhere between the gin&tonic and playing table tennis in the Museum of Modern Art. So today I have been clicking through how-to guides and in the end got rid of salty tears with vinegar. However, I don't think it's recommendable treating your leather shoes like salad, at least not too often. And my boots are survivors, I found them in London in a second hand store. They are from Ann Demeulemeester fw03 collection famously worn by Nicole Kidman in an Irving Penn editorial for the September issue of US Vogue in 2003.

Moj čevljar ni pretirano navdušen nad tem, kako negujem svoje čevlje. Najbrž zato, ker jih ne. Ne upam si jih loščiti, saj se mi vedno zdi, da po tem ne bodo več isti, da se bodo malo bolj svetili in tako pokvarili ves svoj videz. Moji čevlji garajo skupaj z mano, brez nočne kreme. Na koncu sezone jih ubožce le peljem v spa, k čevljarju, od koder se vselej vrnejo preporojeni. Jutri bom vseeno raje obula gumijaste škornje, drgniti slane madeže na Annicah z alkoholnim kisom je bilo malo preveč celo zame.

PST: Zavedam se, da lahko v njih nevarno spominjam na 'apokaliptične gentlemane'.
