I'm so confused...

I'm so confused...

Okay, so I've just climbed up from A2 but this:

Je suis jalouse des nouvelles bottes que tu as achetées.

looks wrong to me.  Why do I have achetées with bottes with avoir?

"Acheter" uses a direct object, which in this phrase appears before the verb (noouvelles bottes). I think that's the case of Special cases when the past participle agrees (in number & gender) when used with 'avoir' in the compound past in French (Le Passé Composé)

That's a B2 topic and from what I've heard even the French get that wrong sometimes. :)
