This post is dedicated to my sister-in-law... Doc Marten's have already come full circle! I use to wear them in grad school... I still love them though, and they've come back in about every color you can imagine, stripes, polka dots,leopard, neon. As a good friend of mine would recommend, they do need a bit of breakin' in... although you can purchase them already worn in. I really think they go with everything, you can wear them with feminine dresses to add a little edge, or with tights, skinny jeans, boot-cut, some tall socks with a skirt or shorts! I recommend getting a pair, and saving them for your kids, cause they'll prolly come back around again!
