Aunt Matilda came across these boots on a voyage to Peru aboard her boat, the Unsinkable II. She was rudely slammed by a pirate ship, causing her boat to sink. She then climbed up their anchor, snuck into the captain's quarters and snatched two of his finest pairs of boots. These versatile Black Boots have a thick non-skid sole. These can be worn up to the knee folded down. They have an inside zipper.
