Should I stay or should I go?
It's easy to talk the talk. It's a lot harder to walk the walk.
I've been thinking of selling my Dr. Martens 1B60 knee-high boots for months. But the thing is...they've kind of been a signature. I mean, they're in two of the four bad outfits in my header image, they always get some kind of remark from passers-by, and they were the shoes that reignited my boots obsession. Incredibly comfortable, super-sturdy, tough as shit: they personify Docs for me.
Unfortunately, I just don't wear them that much. And I don't see myself wearing them too often in the future. I think I've grown out of them. More importantly, they've outgrown me: Bloomingdale's sent me the wrong size, and I didn't notice until I'd already worn them around, rendering them un-returnable. Luckily, the tall style and some really thick socks makes them wearable, even though they are two sizes too big.
What do we think? Should I deal with the shipping hassles and sell them off? Or should I figure out some way to make them work.
