I've blogged about them before, I've been obsessed with them for so long... so why haven't I gotten them yet? Am I afraid of what people might think when they see me wearing them? Will they in turn look overly bulky on my feet? I'm not sure of these questions. What I am sure about however is that I can definitely see myself wearing "smooth cherry red Doc Martens" with black skinny jeans, and a gray crew-neck, walking along the city streets going to the drugstore or doing some last minute shopping in Back Bay before getting dressed up for a night out. The thing is, I don't plan on wearing these boots as a statement. I plan on wearing them to make me look cooler than ever, and to give off an I-don't-care-thats-why-I-wear-Doc Martens- and not ballet flats to be comfortable kind of vibe. I think that they can be thought of as a sort of basic staple that everyone of a certain style should have in there closet, like the hipper, trendier version of moccasins or riding boots. Riding boots... overplayed by the way, but thats a story for another time.
