There are certain memories from when you were little that you really remember. Your first time on a bike, playing with your barbies, birthday parties at chuckie cheese….and getting your first pair of doc martens. The last memory…I remember much more vividly than the rest.

I remember an older girl in my split class had a maroon pair of Doc Martens and I thought they were just the coolest things. My mom and I looked everywhere for them…and couldn’t find them in my size-like so many ‘cool’ things that I wanted when i was growing up. Man does it ever suck being a borderline smurf and being the shortest and smallest person in your grade. You are really limited. Thankfully my mom and I discovered the best loop hole ever.. that made finding all the cool things like Belbottom jeans and Surf style wind breakers much easier–The Kid’s Department.

They were my favourite shoes for a long time…until I finally grew and size 4 did not cut it anymore.

A few weeks ago, however, I scored a pair of Doc Marten Inspired boots. Adult size. Although, they are not official doc’s, they make me feel me nostalgic ( a feeling I always like), a little taller ( i’m still short) and ….badass.

    Yessssssss! I SO remember getting my Docs – what a feeling.

    A few weeks ago, while on the phone with my mom, I said, ‘Hey, are my Doc Martens at your house?’ and she goes, ‘Oh god… DEARRR!!! (calling my dad) She wants her Doc Martens again’. Hahaha. Sadly, haven’t found them (as they WOULD still fit).
