Classic/Copy: Dr. Martens
I bought my first Dr. Martens in the early 90’s, when I had a decent paying job and I could afford a pair. Although I wanted boots, I needed durable shoes for work. I bought a pair similar to these 1461’s because I worked in construction management at the time, and just needed shoes that I could wear with khaki’s and shorts (our uniform in the field).
Now that I’m headed back to England this summer, I want a pair so badly from The British Boot Company in Camden Town. I’ve been looking at the originals, but I love the twists on the classics, like the Triumph 1914 pair pictured above. Although tempted, I vow not to buy a pair until I have the chance to get to the UK. So in the meantime, I bought a pair by Nature Breeze that will satisfy the rugged look of Dr. Martens that I want (for less) until my travels this summer. Have a great weekend!
