Ok, so upon further inspection of the boots, what I have come to understand is this. The brand of the boots is PROZAK, and somehow in my travels I have collected 3 pairs of the same boots from 3 different stores. There are also 2 stores, by 2 different owners, that are selling the Prozak items. Both stores have different prices. All the posters are created by the same person, who appears to be the alt of the creator of the boots. [That's not that uncommon, so no biggie.] Both stores claim that the stuff is not some Business In A Box mess. Neither store have anything saying they're official resellers of that brand. Neither store appear to be owned by the creator of the boots, or by the alternate account. The black boots in question are being sold in both stores.
So are they supposed to be free? I don't know. This mess makes my head hurt. LOL I'm about to be like my mother when she'd finally get worn down by me. "Go! Go! Wear your free boots or pay for them or whatever! Just get away from me!"
