Dr. Martins are just plain annoying to me at this point. They are clumsy, heavy, stupid shoes and I am officially over anyone who is wearing them. The ugly tag on the back, the yellow stitching and transleucent amber sole make me want to puke. There is something about Dr. Martins that reminds me of the 6th grade and Metallica, and I don’t mean that in a good way. The worst part about them is that I have seen way to many people wearing shin high patent leather Docs. So rather than bitch and leave it at that, I will bless you all with some fashion friendly alternatives.
Red Wing Boots are where it’s at this year. They marked their comeback at Capsule this year, and I am totally into them. They are known as beeing work boots, so beating the crap out of them and making them look rugged is a must.
Frye Boots makes more badass biker type boots that usually say fuck the laces and go stright to buckles. These serve as a great alternative to the shin high Dr. Martins. So don’t say there aren’t any other options out there because I just gave you two good ones, and I now reserve the right to plant my size 11 Red Wing Boot in your ass you for wearing Dr. Martins.
