The other day I browsed through Dr. Martens web site and I fell in love with some of their shoes. Well, it isn’t a secret that I love Dr. Martens boots and I have loved them since high school. My very first Dr. Martens boots were brown with the metal cap. I loved them and wore them whole year around. I no longer have them. I think my mom threw them away. I still have my second pair of Dr. Martens boots from high school. They are dark blue and have the metal cap in the front (the safety toe cap thingy). A couple of years ago rediscovered my love for Dr. Martens shoes and at the moment I have two pairs. These are my babies …
The red ones are super comfortable to wear and are my everyday shoes. They are already a couple of years old and still look OK. The silver ones are very special and not everyones cup of tea. I bought them last year. It was a love at first try. I was immediately drawn to them, but was a bit afraid to even try them on. Eventually I did and was in love. I had to have them, so I bought them and wore them a lot last winter and spring. And I can’t wait to wear them again!
And here are some boots I fell in love with while browsing Dr. Martens web site.
I noticed that Dr. Martens shoes became very fashionable. I remember when they were more like military boots and now almost none of their boots have the metal cap. I don’t know … I like the new materials, patterns, but I miss the old ones.
This post brought back some old memories. High school … Getta grip boots, rock music … Fun times!
What do you think of Dr. Martens boots? Have you ever had a pair of Dr. Martens boots or maybe Getta grip boots?
