I used to think that Dr Martens shoes were so difficult to pull off and heavy until a got a pair myself. Not only are the soles comfortable and cushiony, the feeling of wearing boots are no different from a pair of high cut sneakers. The only upside of this? I look way more trendy than if I had chosen to wear a pair of high cut sneakers.

The fact that Dr Martens were originally army boots that were fashioned into a trend made it difficult for me to accept them at first. My impression was marred by the fact that boots were only used for hiking in the woods or washing cars, and they seemed a little bit too rugged to match different styles of clothing. As the trend caught on however, Dr Martens expanded their range and started coming up with more stylish designs that appealed to the female audience. Unfortunately, I had unknowingly fallen in love with the black classic pair that was evergreen. Not only does black match almost every outfit, the look and the feel of it is gorgeous.

Now I want another pair.

I remembered in my university days, there were two groups of students, those that wore proper shoes and those that wore sandals. I belonged to the sandal group because I stayed in hall and it was so much more convenient to wear a pair of sandals.

I noticed that quite a big percentage of the group wearing shoes was wearing Dr Marten shoes. In my second year, I decided to change my image and started to wear proper shoes and the brand I looked at was Dr Marten. Buying a pair of Dr Marten nearly wiped out all my savings but it was worth it because the shoes lasted many years. I was not someone that followed the trend so when the trend to wear Dr Marten died off, I was still wearing mine.

I brought my first Doc Martens boots about two years ago, and up till today, with a bit of polishing, it still looks good. I've gone to the outlet at 313@somerset a few more times since.

The service was better than expected, really. Most times, my queries were answered with a friendly smile and the staff seems as if they genuinely want to help. There was only one or two isolated instances when the staff in charge was unfriendly and cold.

I still feel the boots/shoes/products are overpriced.. considering the fact that most (if not all) are made in China.. but nevertheless, I'll probably buy my second pair of Doc Martens soon!

sturdy fashion statement

Dr Martens has been known to many teens as being the trendy boots, the one pair of shoes you'll need to add a fashion touch to your overall dressing. Priced exorbitantly high, many save up just to own a pair and treat it like their precious. However, uncommon to many, Dr Martens is less fragile than you think it is.

When I was travelling to a winter country I was searching high and low for a pair of sturdy boots that'll pull me through the winter storm and to my surprise, Dr Martens was a plausible option. Not only is it good in snow, it stays strong in mud and dirt. So good news guys, go ahead and plunge your feet into a muddy field, your Martens are made to withstand it!

A hipster thing

The revival of Dr. Martens has garnered quite a following, especially young teens and those who wish to convey their rebellious streak through alternative dressing and grunge choices. Many are rather jaded of the fact that Dr. Martens boots are everywhere, including yours truly, but don’t get me wrong — I love standing out in the crowd, but when everyone wants to stand out, we’re all the same, really.

Dr. Martens in Singapore provides a reasonably good selection. Service is quite non-existent, perhaps due to the fact that everyone is just here to browse and soak in the grunge spirit for a bit. Regardless, a flagship store is always more than welcome here.

Fashionable Safety Shoes

Hating the mainstream is the mainstream nowadays. In that case, Dr martens has been known to youths as the go to place for hipsters(the type of fashion whereby being unique is dressing up like you are from mars). You think they are just safety shoes or boots worn by army men? Think again. Its popularity has been increasing to all ages and I myself own a pair of dr martens.

Singapore has few shops, one in OC and other in wheelock. These shops offer latest designs of boots and shoes which also come in wide array of colors too wide that the rainbow lost its shine. Moreover, for those not so Cinderella out there, they also have clothes for men which are suitable for all fashion type. However, these high quality items made from genuine leather which can last a lifetime can make you and your wallet cry as a pair can cost at least a hundred and fifty.

Some might not prefer wearing these shoes as they are outrageously looking and expensive. However, how we look is not defined by what we cover ourselves with but how much we let our confidence cover us. Being "fashionista" doesn't mean owning a pair of docs but being confident of what you wear.
