I’ve never really gone for a shoe unboxing post but I couldn’t not share these beautiful shoes that I managed to grab in the sale.
…Now enter Dr Martens.
Not very adventurous, sure, but a while back Dr Martens were very daring for me but evidently happened to be the best decision, shoe wise, I’ve ever made. However, it really was the shop that did it for me. These new boots are only my second pair, but the shop ‘Vitas’ is where I will continue to go, until further notice.The shop never fails to interest me and always seems to have a great, unique selection. My first pair were an all black, velvet textured boot, they were so eye catching, quirky and subtly added something to an outfit. Although they are now only around 4 years old, they would still be wearable if the velvet hadn’t rubbed off in places. They’re still a beautiful shoe and I suppose it just shows a bit of wear, however I don’t like how noticeably different the patches are where the velvet has rubbed away. I feel like you can get away with wear and tear with shoes like Vans but with textured boots I feel a bit indifferent.
Thats why I went boot hunting for another pair and when I revisited Vitas I managed to come across a unique, yet manageable boot that I fell head over heels for, but then I wasn’t that surprised. Great shop. These Docs are even more incredible because in different lighting they appear slightly different colours, very metallic. They’re made of a soft suede with a textured top which I think gives it a bit of dimension. Although I’d be apprehensive on scuffing them, I don’t feel as if they’d be a huge problem like my previous ones. They’re so comfortable and haven’t taken long at all to break in, I’m not sure they needed to be broken in at all due to the soft leather. They’re beyond comfortable.
I’m hoping to get a bit more outfit posts up soonish featuring these boots to show you how I style them because a big reason I chose them was to, yet again jazz up my everyday, boring outfits whilst incorporating comfort and warmth as we are now reaching colder weather. Dressing and appearing as if I have an interest in fashion is now back on the cards. A big reason I went quiet for a few months and in general tend to be a bit on and off is because of regular health hiccups. You’d be amazed at how it causes lack of inspiration, which tends to make you reach towards the joggers and no one want so to see that.
