Dreaming of Dr. Martens | Wishlist


When I first visited London, I must have been about 13. It was a weekend away with my parents doing the typical touristy things - Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, a load of Museums and a spot of shopping.

I remember feeling really overwhelmed at the number of people there - but also how different people looked. We were only an hour and a half away from home by train, and yet people dressed differently. It was probably the first time I saw proper punks, loitering around Camden in their trusty DMs.

Ever since, I wanted a pair.

I've since owned my fair share of lookalikes, but nothing can beat the real thing. I love that they mould to your feet like Converses - no other shoes love you back in the same way that DMs do. They come in such an array of colours and patterns too - there really is one to suit any one.

Here are my current favourites, all available on Shoetique...

  2. I love those quilted ones! I have a few pairs but I haven't bought any this year which should be a crime. I need MOAR!

  4. My go-to shoes are my DMs and I would never be without them :) The black quilted ones could be worn with pretty much everything so they'd be my first choice :D

  7. I've got a few pairs in the back of my cupboard but they're not really my style right now. I'd never chuck them mind you!

  8. I can never decide what I think about them. I've never been cool enough to work the DM look, I fear. I have a pair of floral print lookalikes, but they are so uncomfortable that I haven't really worn them much.

  9. Ugh I've wanted a pair of DMs for yonks, but have never been able to commit to one colour! The pewter ones are pretty cool, though.
