A hypochondirac moment…


I bought these Enzo Angiolini boots on Hautelook a few weeks ago & they finally arrived yesterday.  Unfortunately, I had a mini-panic attack when I took them out of the box because there was a white powder substance all over them.  Naturally, I immediately thought of anthrax & forcefully tossed the boots onto my balcony.  I did a quick Google search, but had no luck finding info about Enzo Angiolini boots covered with white powder.  So, I decided to call Hautelook. Their customer service rep was very pleasant, but she had no idea why I would have white powder on the boots – her suggestion was that something had simply fallen in the box during packaging.  Okay – like what?  Poison?  Eeeeek!  This is seriously how my mind works sometimes.  Next, I tried calling The Jones Group – the North American distributor of Enzo Angiolini boots.  I had to leave a voice mail for Tina, their customer service rep.  So far, no response.  So, I was still freaking out, and decided to give Google search another try.  I ended up finding my boots on Piperlime, accompanied by a warning that the boots will have a leather protector on them when they first arrive.  Phew – I am going to assume the white powder is just a leather protector.  Why would there not have been a product insert in the box discussing the protective coating?  Since I don’t believe white powdered boots are the norm, a little information would have been nice.  That’s my helpful thought of the day 🙂

Boots:  Enzo Angiolini ‘Karissa’ boots (should have stuck to my gut and ordered a 7.5.  The size 8 is just slightly too big.  I will keep the size 8’s becasue it is not possible to switch them for a size 7.5 – I would have to wait for the next Enzo Angiolini sale & hope these boots were featured.  Too much work and too much time).
