A random deal for gamblers who need new shoes

This Amazon listing is for a “Bed Stu Men's Plattsburgh Boot”, but as you can see, the accompanying image is very un-bootlike sandal made by Roan.

A tiny bit of research, and I found this listing for a “Bed Stu Men's Plattsburg Combat Boot”, which seem to be handcrafted, Goodyear welted boots.

If I were a gambling man who needed a new pair of boots, I might click on the sandal listing and see if a boot gets delivered. Bed Stu boots typically retail in the $200+ range, so $23.95 is a pretty great deal, and the free Amazon returns take most of the risk out of this gamble.

Note: Bed Stu boots run large. I would size down.

Also: Bed Stu is more known for making distressed, sort-of-fashionable boots. I own a pair (bought on clearance at urbn), but if I needed a pair of boots for anything serious, this isn’t the brand I would count on.
