Anyway, white_hart is also caught in the autumn boot cull, and I started rambling on her post about it then thought I should bring it over here, not least because of what Dr Martens have been doing this season. Just look at these!
Fugly and will go with nothing.
Very you, for whatever that's worth
Still Dr Martens and will therefore rip your heels to shreds
I don't answer questions about shoes.
Darling, you are many things, but you are not a goth.
Despite those zips, still too narrow for my calves.
I don't answer questions about anything called "Le Bodice".
Aren't those your old shoes?
Aren't those your old shoes but red?
They'll wear out in under a year again, if you're lucky!
Buying three sets of sneakers would be as cheap, you know.
Did you hear me?
Buying shoes and boots off the internet?
Fantastic! I do it all the time.
Not the best idea for a flipper-footed freak like you!
They won't fit, and then you'll have to send them back, and it'll be a nightmare.
Yes and I will recommend a site.
No, and I will tell a long ranty story as to why.
I expect to be able to walk a few miles in my shoes every day.
Yes I do!
... and I expect them to wear out in under a year.
No shoe could withstand that sort of punishment.
My legs couldn't withstand that sort of punishment.
Mine could, and in heels, too!
Right, I'm off to listlessly pace the shoe shops now ...
