unless you've been living under a rock.. or um.. not following fashion blogs, then you'd know how lace up boots are a must have item, and Dr. Martens shoes have been making a serious comeback lately, especially in the high fashion realm. They could be seen pounding the runway of the Jean Paul Gaultier show,all over lookbooks for Yohji Yamamoto, Karl Lagerfeld and Hermés, and in high gloss in mags like Vogue and Wallpaper*
i would just love a pair of the vintage lace-ups for myself (size 5.5).. speaking of which, onlineshoes.com has a wide selection..
AND they're currently running a Doc contest, giving away a free pair of docs. and you can't beat free.
