Bentornati! It's Boot Season: Brown Paisley Bootie

Buongiorno a tutti!

What's in a name?  That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.*

Still over a month away until the first day of Spring, and the lone bud which adorns the rose bushes I inherited, has bloomed; an anachronism** to say the very least, it has me summoning the immortal spirit of perhaps the world's most renown playwright and poet, William Shakespeare.  A rose by any other name would indeed smell as sweet, but I can't help but wonder if the same would apply to these booites, which I have had in my possession for so long but whose name has since escaped me...

 Ah!  Now I remember where I found these boots...Payless! 
Just as fabulous as expensive boots, but at a fraction of the price...Sweet!
