Shoe are you? Cowboy Boots!

Recently, I was interviewed by Miss Meghan Cleary, America’s shoe expert on her stylish weekly podcast, “Shoe are you?”

You can listen to the podcast and view a few photos on Miss Meghan’s blog.

Meghan is the author of The Perfect Fit: What your shoes say about you. A swell little book, with a special chapter dedicated to “the cowboy boot girl.”
