Still looking for footwear?

Ok so all those who missed out on boots by Natalie since she closed orders in early January, I really have no sympathy for you guys. I mean I told you since last year where to go and get your footwear organised. However, I know that desperation would be setting in by now and in reality I do care about your footwear looking up to mark and on point hence the reason I found myself "behind the bridge" at Piccadilly, East Dry River in Port of Spain hunting down mas boots one Sunday evening.

It was there I found "Jomo's Leather Shop", a tiny establishment run my Lorna and her husband Jomo. This is the place to go if you need boots cheap and you need boots fast! Surprisingly, given the location, they have lots of orders for boots which come in a variety of colours such as white, red, silver, bronze and gold. The basic 12 inch boots are $130.00TT while the 16 inch boots are $200.00TT. These boots are flat with a small heel.

Special orders such as wedges, high stack heels, platforms and even fabric covering can be accommodated but these orders MUST be placed early. Regular boots can be ordered and collected within a few days. If you wish they can even decorate the boots for you, but the choice is also yours to decorate yourself.

The booth number is 26 and Lorna or Jomo can be contacted at 797-7594.

Please note that the area where the booth is located is notorious for crime even though a police station is a stone's throw away; if you are interested in getting boots there go early and go with a friend. One of my friends told me a co-worker of hers got her boots from there and had no problems at all, but it is better to be safe than sorry.

Lastly, this little booth is nothing like Natalie's shop; there is no air-conditioning, black tiled floor or linx machine; this is just a very,very humble leather shop with mas boots for sale. If you are accustomed to the aforementioned creature comforts it is best you seek some other alternative footwear.
