My Doc shoes were my pride and joy because my old man had up to then refused to let me have a pair, associating them with skinheads and thuggery, I bought them myself with saving from a paper round. When I bounced down the road, jeans up to the ankles, with white socks and a Fred Perry, I thought I was the beez kneez and a man at last, aged about 14.
When he was stationed in Hong Kong he even bought some plastic fake ones and expected me to wear them, but that’s another tale for another day.29 October, 2017 at 3:26 pm #1077154

I still wear mine on very rare occasions, was a Goth when they were new they have 16 holes, black and black laces originally, i used dubbin on mine to waterproof and soften the leather as my parents are horsey and dubbin was always there, they are 16 years old now, maybe time to e bay them,bet they make as much as i originally paid.29 October, 2017 at 7:53 pm #1077211
