My New Favourite Shoes...

Sunday, 6 August 2017

Owning a pair of Dr Martens has been on my wishlist for such an incredibly long time, so seeing so many people sporting gorgeous pairs of them on blogs and Instagram has definitely made me feel pretty envious in recent months...

However, I can now proudly call myself a Dr Martens owner! 

I have known for some time that I would opt for a pair of the shoes that the brand sell, and whilst browsing through Schuh's range quite recently, I found a pair that I really loved...

The pair that I opted for are the 1461 Classic Black Flat shoes in patent - whilst I do like the classic boot style that the brand offer, I must say that the shoes suit me a lot more, and will probably work a lot better with many of my outfits. Therefore, I am already getting pretty excited about pairing my new shoes with all manner of outfits from black trousers and t-shirts, to jeans and big slouchy jumpers once the weather starts to get colder (although, it does appear that summer has pretty much vanished already).

Most people know that Dr Martens aren't exactly cheap, and these were no exception. But, I would certainly say that my pair are an investment piece and from what I have heard from many other Dr Martens owners, will last me for years on end... The soles are super thick and sturdy, so will take forever to wear down and will hopefully also help me combat my ever-present fear of slipping over on icy paths in wintertime. Plus, the style of the shoe itself is just really versatile, making them easy to pair with many outfits, and wearable for a lot of the year.

So far, I am still just breaking in my Dr Martens, but once you have worn them a good few times, I have heard that they mould to the shape of your feet and become pretty much the comfiest thing to wear...

However, the sore patches I have got on my feet from wearing these in so far has been of little concern - I am simply more preoccupied with how good these shoes look, and how great it feels to finally own a pair of these cult classics!
