Aren't they fantastic?! I had to sell my pairs that I had bought when I was younger as they no longer fit. I miss the beautiful gothic designs they made from the 80's. Could dance all night in them!

I probably will anyway so maybe the questions should be, how can I wear them to their best style advantage without looking like "mutton dressed up as lamb"? Suggestions?

I am over 50 and I have several pares of Docs. They look nice on me. They are sturdy and cute.

I never got the message that I was supposed to switch to "Life Stride" or "Easy Spirit" once I turned a certain age.

That's a non question....you can wear Docs at any age ..imo

The ones you have more than likely cost a hell of a lot less than what you would pay today

Boy, you are not kidding!! I looked up several of my Doc's on eBay and was stunned at the price. I have the original box for most of mine, too.

If it's older docs still made in England it's even better! The new Docs are made in Asia and are not as good imo.
