Review: Dr Marten Boots at Mastershoe-Myshu

Dr Martens-Rowena-Black

When I was a teenager in the 1990s everyone had Dr Marten boots. You know, the lace up ones in black (a few rebels had them in Cherry), with the super comfy AirWair sole that is resistant to just about everything that you can throw at them, and the signature yellow stitching around them? Everyone that is, except me. Dr Marten boots were expensive and I was never allowed a pair (my sister had some – which I think she’s still got, so long-lasting are they – but she may have bought them herself from her Saturday job wages). So I’ve always felt that I missed out on that particular teenage rite of passage.

When the lovely people at Mastershoe-Myshu contacted me to review a pair of footwear from their website I jumped at the chance to finally own a pair of Docs. The lace up boots aren’t really my style (though they do come in quite an array of colours these days, including bright pink and various floral designs) but this pair of classic biker-style boots, the Rowena, will work with my wardrobe. They will toughen up girly dresses, look great over skinny or under flared leg jeans, and be super comfortable whilst doing it, thanks to that trademark sole. They are black leather and have a feel that is not quite suede but not polished leather either. I think they will age well and with a little breaking in should be super comfy too.

Mastershoe-Myshu stock boots and shoes for women, men and children from many well known brands including Iron Fist, Hunter Wellies and Buffalo. They have lots of styles in sizes 8 and 9 so if you have big feet (as I do) it would definitely be worth a look. Standard UK delivery is free and there is also a next day shipping option if that’s a service you require. My boots were delivered quickly and I would definitely recommend the service from the site.
