My love for shoes knows no bounds and while I am not super true to any particular brands, there is one brand that stands out in my collection: Dr. Marten’s. Dr. Marten’s shoes are known for their sturdy quality as they were started as workman boots. Brought to the mainstream by the punk scene of the 70s and many designers and famous musicians, the brand has much more to offer than their iconic 1460 boots. I have those and then some!
Dr. Marten’s Shoe Collection
Dr. Marten’s are some of my favorite shoes, which is why I own 5 pairs. Five pairs that I love to wear and style up in different ways. Each pair has its own function in my wardrobe. From toughening up a look, to making a look more edgy or preppy: a pair of Docs can do it all. And yes, I will wear these with skirts and dresses. Curious to see how I wear these?

5 pairs of Dr. Marten’s, 5 different outfits
Dr. Marten’s are a notoriously difficult pair of shoes to break in. They are a very sturdy shoe. So sturdy in fact that you need to go through blisters and sore feet until they become truly comfortable. Since then they have started making styles that are a bit easier to wear, made from softer leathers, you can now buy Dr. Marten’s without the hassle. However, if you want to go for a classic pair of 1460s or 1461s, then here are my tips.
These shoes have caused me so much trouble, but now I hardly wear anything else.
Since it’s been nearly 6 months since I last posted anything on my shoe collection I thought it would be time to give you an update on my current shoe collection. Since the last one, some shoes have disappeared (I threw out about 7 pairs since the last video) and of course more have been added as well. Some of these new buys were already featured on this blog, but not all of them. Also, the video I made last time was pretty crappy: pictures, bad lighting, you name it. I was bored because I am busy celebrating my vacation and then had an idea: what if I were to make an actual, moving video with better lighting? Well guys and dolls, this is the final result:
All shoes are listed in random order: this is the order in which I pulled them out of my wardrobe. The only shoes not in the video are my hiking boots, trainers, dance sneakers and flip flops. All other shoes are in the video and range from flats to high heels, to boots, ankle boots and sneakers.
