Friday footsies!



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.

I like shoes. I even (or especially) like funky shoes. My problem with them (besides the whole expense thing), is that I'd never have anyplace to wear them to! Where does one wear metallic fuchsia boots? I'm so much of a homebody that my closet would end up populated by neglected, dusty shoes. Oh, wait. It already is...

The red ones, yes please!

Never buy a pair of shoes during or just before a trip abroad.

Plan on getting shoes for the trip. Buy them two months ahead and wear them.

Nothing is as miserable as breaking in new shoes while hiking.

I have not had a bad experience with Docs, but then I won't let an inexperienced clerk sell me something that is "close" to my size.

Heck, just wear them to the store. Brighten things up for everyone! And if people stare rudely, blink your eyes prettily and tell them "These boots were made for kickin' ass"!

Docs...memories of English football hooligans past....how the mighty have fallen.
