I am a native New Yorker with an allegiance to teams in my home state of New York and my adopted state of Texas. But that is the great thing about living in America you have that freedom of choice whether it's about sports teams or about the shoes you wear.
Reading Aikman's tweet brought me to a web site called www.BootCampaign.com. The Boot Campaign was founded by five women in Texas who wanted to do something to honor our troops for all they do to protect our freedom and to help them adjust to life when they come home. Sometimes we take for granted the sacrifices that these men and women make and I think it is amazing that these women have started a grass roots campaign to make a difference one soldier at a time. On their web site they had pictures of celebrities who have purchased a pair of these boots and gotten on board the boot train including Troy Aikman, Dolly Parton, and The Detroit Red Wings hockey team.

So today while I am waiting for my authentic on-trend military "BOOTS" I am pulling on my new Stuart Weitzman boots. I am admiring their beauty and how they make me feel but I am also comforted in the knowledge that I am lucky that I have a choice of boots...a choice of clothes...a choice of cars...a choice of location...a choice of schools for my daughter...thank you Boot Campaign...thank you TROOPS! I may never know exactly how it feels to walk in your boots but with every step I take I will always be reminded of how the steps you take every day in your boots benefit the steps I take in mine.
I may have to order a pair for my hubby for Father's Day so he can get the boot too!
Now everyone else...get on your boots!
