I love these shoes..Dr.Martens. I still remember when i eagerly bought them in 2007 in a sale in Reading! 5 years and still good to go! Come rain, shine, cloud, sun, snow...they see me through the day without gasping or cursing! They walked with me through the bylanes, highroads, bridges, cobbled streets, muddy meadows, of ...hmm..Brussels, Brugge, Antwerp.. Cologne, Amsterdam, Luxemborg, Edinburg, Lakeland, London, Ooty, Mysore, Bangalore, Paris, Toulouse,..and.... and ofcourse throughout Hyderabad! I've done this in my fav. moleskine notebook.
