I have had a dislike of Dr Martens since Emma Wilson kicked me in the shins with her sensible footwear. However, Dr Marten seems to have been having a bit of a resurgence and I have gone and procured myself a pair. They look amazing but I might get beaten up wearing them. I got a bit giddy with Stone’s Got-To IPA and Cyber Monday took its vengeance on me. In Dr Martens words –

The 1460 is the original Dr. Martens boot. Its recognizable DNA looks like this: 8 eyes, grooved sides, a heel-loop, yellow stitching, and a comfortable, air-cushioned sole. This season, we’ve adorned it with a piece of British history: a print of artist William Blake’s “Satan Smiting Job with Sore Boils”. Ever the creative, freethinking individual, Blake perfectly embodies the spirit of Dr. Martens — and that’s why we collaborated with Tate Britain to feature two of his most famous, provocative paintings.
