Must have 1: M for Martens

United Kingdom(Great Britain)

I always have problems with my shoes during the winter as it is hard to anticipate what weather will be like in next 2 days, next week. And it is especially annoying when it snows or rains and I don’t want my brand new knee-high boots to be worn out after just few hours.

So I decided this year to buy high quality boots that will survive all conditions – no matter how rainy or snowy it will be outside. First of all I thought that good wellies will do the trick. However, you will not wear them to your coat on the way to work – come on. Besides, I will not buy any boots with flowers on them etc. I wanted something versatile and of course with laces. There was nothing in stores. Just nothing. And then I saw Dr. Martens’ boots. They were just perfect, but I cannot say the same about the price. However, they are worth it. And I’ll tell you why.

I had Dr. Martens shoes once in the school. I wanted them because my brother had them and it meant you were cool. Anyway, they served me (no kidding) maybe 10 years. This is long. After that time I started to wear more girly and sophisticated stuff. But you don’t wear heels all the time and who cares anyway when sometimes you decide to choose something unconventional but more comfortable?

So I bought them despite the price and would do that again. They are great during rainy and snowy days, they bounce with every step, they are comfortable and easy to clean – because they are from natural rubber so they are 100% waterproof. Great great great! But there is only one problem. They do not sell them in half sizes so you have to choose between 4, 5, 6, etc. I bought size 5 and because my right foot is little bit bigger I should have bought size 6. As they recommend on their website: ‘Please note that these Wellington Boots tend to come up smaller than our standard 1460 Boot so we recommend that you purchase one size larger than your usual size.’

But I strongly recommend them especially now when we experience this changeable weather.
