get a grip

We went to our favorite store Dog and Pony here on Guadalupe in Austin this past week and discovered a new shoe brand named Osborn Shoes. All the materials for each shoe are individually hand-cut and assembled by hand. Osborn's vertically integrated manufacturing practice establishes a work environment that is sweat-shop free and each shoe is signed by its maker, as a testament to the sense of pride for the maker, as well as its wearer. Their price points are right in the middle, ranging from $70 - $175 - we think Nancy Sinatra would agree since these boots are made for walkin'.

P.S. - Ladies and Gentlemen, Valentines Day is exactly one week away. With that said, a nice pair of Osborn Shoes would be the perfect gift esp. to sport out this summer.
