Cleaning out my closets today I revisited my Doc Marten collection from decades ago. The ones I have are all patterns or colors and 8 eye height. They are all in marvelous shape and soooo very comfortable! As I've gotten older I have banished all uncomfortable shoes & boots from my life but these feel great - & I can move confidently in them. But, but, but - - - can a gal well over 60 still wear 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?

Any jeans or slacks. Also long,maxi type skirts & dresses. You're essentially playing with "hard & soft."

Great suggestion, charlygal - thanks!! I'm thinking that the Doc's will be the "punch" in my outfit and will tone the rest of the pieces and accessories down a bit so I won't look like I'm "overdone".

purehuman - I agree & Doc's are made to last and last. Mine show little wear - even the hot pink and hologram ones which I loved and wore a lot "back in the day"!

Yes to the Docs. In my opinion, they are now a classic wardrobe staple that span generations. Also Gripfast, and Fluevog, ah so little time so many shoes!
