"The economy is obviously not that bad. Both Sandilar (in Applegate and in Claire Pearone) and Renaissance in Ann Arbor are carrying an elaborate handmade Italian boot by Ottorino Bossi. The boot, with snake, suede and metallic trim, sells for about $600, and both stores are well stocked. Says Sandilar owner Stan Zerman, who bought the boot in three colors: "It's a fabulous boot. I'm not worried about selling it." Amazing."
