Docs are a classic. ROCK ON, SISTER.

This is making me wish it was winter again so I could break out the Docs. I think I am going to buy a new pair this next season. I want oxblood. Always wanted a pair of those.

My 57 year old husband bought a pair of classic black Doc Martens last year and they are so dang sexy on him. I love it when he wears them with some good jeans and a black leather jacket. Yum. Still a bad boy.

I think they are fine to wear, as long as you skip the laddered tights and thigh high skirts! lol!

I'm with you. I'm currently having flashbacks to my teen years. **Shudder**
(nope, didn't wear them back then either. But they were EVERYWHERE.)

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 say go for it. You only live once and they're your feet. Whatever makes you happy. I love my Docs and nobody will tell me I can't wear em.
