A Trailer of Shoes

Remember when an airstream trailer was used for traveling down the open road with adventures in sight?  Yeah, me either.  These days it's highly more likely to find a trailer full of cupcakes rather than a family of four and their border collie.  But what about an airstream full of designer shoes? Appropriately located on South Congress, Bootleg is the first shoe boutique run out of a trailer.  While I can't picture many Austinites purchasing shoes that cost more than their month's rent, they are definitely fun to look at, drool over, and try on.  The good thing about looking at $1,000 shoes is that then the shoes priced at $100 seem like a steal.  Or maybe that's a bad thing?  I can't decide!  But, I'll be coming back to Bootleg when either  A) I win the lottery B) Something really bad happens and I need a shopping induced smile or C) I just want to look at really cool shoes.

Sarah Lewis, Owner/Creator of Bootleg, will be rolling her airstream onto the TRACE patio at the W Austin for November’s Sip & Shop.  The trailer’s temporary residence at the W begins November 13th through November 15th. This multi-day shopping event will feature TRACE’s happy hour “S.I.P” pricing on drinks and nibbles all day on Monday from the special S.I.P menu.

I saw this trailer when I went to eat at Hopdaddy's last weekend. Great selection of shoes. Too bad they're not at cupcake prices.

That's such an awesome idea. I actually saw an airstream in Brisbane and missed Austin instantly :( From all of the places I visited in the US, I adored Austin the most!

My friends from LA were in town, and we popped into this trailer not knowing what it was really....and nearly fell on our rear ends after gawking at the prices!!! Beautiful shoes, but HOLY COW!!
