Lately I’ve been looking for a shoe to invest in, something worth my money and love. At first I was intrested in getting a pair of taupe suede Jeffery Campble litas. Which are $250.00 average. Even if its a big steady70′ rocker platform shoe I think someone like me whose, high heel challenged would still have some trouble with them, and I know I wouldnt wear them as often as I would like. So then I kept searching and then it hit me, Doc Martens. As I told my mom I wanted a pair of “Doc’s” for Christmas she told me she had a pair of the famous patent leather black one’s when she was my age, which points out how these classic combat boots will never go out of style. Doc Martens have been around for god knows how long, but they definately became a cult favorite in the 90’s grunge era. They have been made the same way for the past 150 years. They werent made to be a fashionable shoe, but a workers boot for miners and construction workers since 1901’s, then got the attention of cool kids everywhere in the 1960’s. Unlike the litas, an orginal pair of Doc’s cost about $115.00 average, more bang for your buck! They’ve grown tremendously though since 1901, with now more then 15 diffrent styles of Doc’s, clothing, and accesorries, and you can design your own custom pair as well. I actually love the history of Doc Martens as much as I love the shoe itself. I know once I get my hands on a pair of these I am going to live and them and love them forever.
