"(I)wear boots everyday of my life and I think it's just sort of like having shoes for every outfit," she says. "I felt like I had to have a pair of boots in every color for every outfit."
She has 40 pairs to boot.
"You know it's funny cause I don't really think of it as a collection. It looks like a collection but it's like my clothes," she laughs.
In fact, she says they're the most comfortable and stylish clothes she owns.
"Some of my boots I've had for over 20 years and I can still wear them. People still go, 'cool those are great boots.'"
Red got her first pair when she was in high school.
"Every time I had a little extra money it's like 'I'm gonna save for a new pair of boots,' that was just my treat for myself."
She says she wears every pair on her boot wall, except for one.
"It's a very nice custom made Texas brand cowboy boot."
It's a red pair her husband bought as a one year anniversary present.
"I think he paid like a $150 and that was like 21 years ago. It seemed like a zillion dollars to me but they were like the prized boot and I wore them and wore them and wore them," she says. "They're fragile now and I don't wear them anymore, but I'll keep them for ever."
But that's not the case for all of her kicks. Some have gotten the boot.
"If I want a new pair...like a new blue pair I'll say, 'do I want this blue pair more than that blue pair' and I'll get rid of one pair."
But to make Red's boot wall of fame, there are some qualifications.
"I am a little bit of a boot snob," she says. "I like fancy boots and I like heavily decorated or inlaid boots but they're often really, really stiff when you buy them because of the layers. There's a brand called old Gringo that's really soft and comfortable, and I like those."
Red loves her boots, heart and soul.
"It's easier to resole a pair of boots then to buy a new pair so you just keep them and keep resoling them."
