New Boots

ロンドンではいくつか買い物をしました。このブーツも、今回のお買い物。夫は凄くびっくりして、「本気?本当にドック・マーチンのブーツ買うの?ほんとに履くの?ほんとに?」と念押しの連続。相当イメージと違うらしいです(笑)。しかも、靴紐を赤に変えて見ました。

In London, we did some shopping and these boots are one of the things I got. My husband was completely shocked and kept saying to me, “Are you sure you want Doc Marten’s boots? Are you really going to wear them? Are you sure about it?” Apparently these are totally out of my character. I even changed the shoe laces from the original black ones to red.

住んでいるところが田舎で道が泥濘んでることが多くて、スニーカーはドロドロになってしまうし、普通の皮のブーツもそう。長靴は歩きにくそうだし。これは靴底が厚くて泥が付きにくいし、ワックスをしておけば防水できるしたスキニーのパンツやジーンズとの相性も良いし、丈の長いスカート(10年ぶりにスカートも買いました、シンガポールではタイツを履けないのでスカートも履けなかった)との相性も良いし、今のところ気に入って履いています。

We live in the countryside and roads are very muddy in this weather, my sneakers got so muddy in a short walk and the same for my ordinary leather boots, but these Doc Martens have very thick soles so don’t so easily get muddy and with the wax it’s water resistant as well so I think they’re practical. They go well with my skinny trousers and jeans that I wear often. I haven’t worn skirts for 10 years or so because I don’t like wearing a skirt without a pair of tights and I couldn’t wear tights in Singapore in that hot weather, but I just bought a long skirt as I feel these boots go well with long skirts.

    Especially the red laces!
    Oh so practical and they’ll look super with your skinny trousers and jeans, and your new long skirt.
