Here we have a great pair of black leather knee high boots. Size 4 (37-but a bigger 4) and do up with a zip. Originally bought from Barratts a few years back. Lovely boots - were re-heeled and worn again, a few minor scuff marks-but great condition, nevertheless.
Even despite close inspection we don't always find everything. We also don't wear them to check for anything. What we do is a good check both inside and outside, feeling with our hands and looking carefully under the light.
