A year ago I made my first purchase of a smart Dr. Martens item; some smart black shoes; just out of a desire for something more formal than the trainers I was so accustom to sporting.
Today I bought my first pair of Dr. Martens boots, and already I love them. To be perfectly honest there are few things I don't get excited about when they are packaged and boxed with care, and cost more then £30. I've gone for a deep, vivid brown colour as I think it better suits my usual style. My brothers seems to approve, so I think it was a good choice.
