Dandy Salvos booty call

Yes, I know it's spring and black boots are hardly necessary... but do you think I could pass these up? Genuine leather and only $7.99, and in such good condition!

I found them in the Dandenong Salvos (near Vinnies) on Friday, which is also where I found these boots (I seem to have luck finding black boots at this particular Salvos!). The sales lady was very impressed that they were so cheap, and so was I! I asked her about Buy Nothing New month which is a campaign/competition the Salvos are running but she did not know anything about it. Are any of you oppers taking part? I don't buy new stuff as a rule, but I've already bowed out of the competition as I've had to purchase a few haberdashery items to finish off things I've been making for friends' babies... you can see one example on my blog... I know you can buy haberdashery at op shops and I quite often do, but this past fortnight I've needed quite specific things (like 2cm wide elastic, velcro, a purple zip...) so haven't been able to just take what I can get at op shops unfortunately!

What brand are they? I love them. I have been looking for similar riding style but they are too darn expensive. Also, are yours leather?
