I'm not a big fan of Dr. Martens, as I've always found them uncomfortable, and John Fluevog always had boots that were more foot friendly with the same look and supremely better fit, if a little more expensive. Once I was in London in winter and the darling boots I wore for the trip finally succumbed to the cold, wet streets and the leather soles soaked through. I went to a local shop and picked up some Docs that weren't comfy at all after first blush, but I was sort of in a tight spot and had to wear them for most of the trip. I never really got over that. I suppose you have to break in a pair of boots like that, and a walksome holiday is not the time or place... Nordstrom has some new ones out this fall, though, and I'm taking a second look... Hello Kitty punkette? Me-OW!!!
I'm squeeing over these, though. Want the fuschia metallic boots and the red glossy heels in high-shine patent leather.
Fun when it's 110 degrees out to think of wearing boots again. :) It won't be long now.
