In a recent post, Vagabondish reviewer Katie Hammel goes searching after what she describes as the Chupacabra, or Holy Grail, of footwear. The search began as follows:
I was looking for more than just a pair of versatile boots. After booking a trip to Russia for late December, I was looking for the chupacabra, the holy grail of boots, a mythical pair that would fit a set of criteria so specific I was glad I had more than four months to find them.
I figured I would be searching until the very last minute before my trip, trying to find a single pair of boots that were: comfortable and low-heeled enough for walking around during the day, and on which I felt secure enough to brave the icy sidewalks of Moscow; stylish enough, with a slight heel, so that I’d feel comfortable wearing them to a trendy restaurant or paired with a wool or cotton dress; and warm enough that my feet wouldn’t freeze on the frigid Russian nights.
How’d her search end? Check out the rest of her Akita High Boot review to find out, or shop for a pair of your own on www.keenfootwear.com here.
