A pair of Timbs in a room full of Uggs

I set this as my Twitter bio several weeks ago and I have been giving it some deeper thought. If you are not savvy with these shoe trends, Ugg boots are largely worn by generic teenage girls. They are notorious for being a common and stereotypical for females. To me, they represent fitting into the mold…Waking up, slipping on a pair of Uggs and blending into the crowd of my peers…

"Timbs", or Timberlands, are construction boots that have come into everyday style in recent years. They are statement-making and unafraid. In October, I purchased my own pair of Timbs. Every time I wear them, people always compliment my choice and often laugh about how a woman of my small size fits into these bold boots. 

In the never-ending pursuit of finding my path, I’d like to think that I stomp through uncharted territories with my Timberland boots on. I am daring and resolute in my work; I refuse to ever settle for mediocrity. Paved sidewalks are for regular people revisiting the same old places every day. And do you know what kind of shoes walk on sidewalks? Uggs.
