Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dr Martens 1460 Shimmer Boots (Purple) (Apparel)
I hesitated gettign Dr Martens for a good few months but eventually took the plunge at christmas when I could justify the expense. I absolutely love them and get comments every time I wear them. However if you choose to buy a pair, be prepared for pain for the first few weeks. Breaking them in is a pain in the backside but worth it. WHere the tongue is stitched together dug into one foot and on the other i got blisters from where the leather bent into the back of my ankle, they are also very clunky the first time worn. I have had them since christmas and have worn them on and off every week since. I panicked after the first few times of wearing them that they would never start to break in....thankfully I stuck with it and with every wear they mould a little better and rub a little less. I wear them with thick socks and put plasters where I get most rubbing which helps. I can honestly say apart from the pain of breaking them in they are the best boots I have ever worn. I wear them with jeans leggings....anything really and just wonder why it took me so long to buy a pair.
