There are certain memories from when you were little that you really remember. Your first time on a bike, playing with your barbies, birthday parties at chuckie cheese....and getting your first pair of doc martens. The last memory...I remember much more vividly than the rest.
I remember an older girl in my split class had a maroon pair of Doc Martens and I thought they were just the coolest things. My mom and I looked everywhere for them...and couldn't find them in my size-like so many 'cool' things that I wanted when i was growing up. Man does it ever suck being a borderline smurf and being the shortest and smallest person in your grade. You are really limited. Thankfully my mom and I discovered the best loop hole ever.. that made finding all the cool things like Belbottom jeans and Surf style wind breakers much easier--The Kid's Department.
They were my favourite shoes for a long time...until I finally grew and size 4 did not cut it anymore.
A few weeks ago, however, I scored a pair of Doc Marten Inspired boots. Adult size. Although, they are not official doc's, they make me feel me nostalgic ( a feeling I always like), a little taller ( i'm still short) and ....badass.
