I am a recovering goth. Every goth kid loves Doc Martens, regardless of what stage of gothy-ness they are in. I still tend towards dark and dramatic clothing, but you would be hard-pressed to call me goth. I still have that goth heart, and I still love my Doc Martens.
I have several pairs: the too-big matte black boots that I wore for ten years before finally retiring them; the black cherry-colored boots that fit better and took the place of the black ones; and the shiny black and dirty yellow swirled boots that were my back-up.
Then there were the ruby red slippers of Doc Marten. I saw mention of velvet Docs on some website or another and fell in love. I had to have them. I was lucky with these – there were a number of them, brand new and reasonably priced on Ebay. I had to wait a week or so before I found the perfect pair – the right size, the right color, the right style. These definitely fit the bill. Slightly more comfortable than regular Docs, these didn’t take as long to break in. Remember, I am a tactile person, so I loved curling up and petting my feet.
Nowadays I have become lazy and rarely take the time to lace up a pair of boots. If I am going out, I wear sexy heels. Running errands usually gets ballet slippers, but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for these.Powered by Sidelines
