In my what seems to be an annual hunt for Boots That I Cannot Kill, I fell into a rabbit hole of Dr Martens boots. It felt like the early 1990s and 14 year old me almost got a hold of my credit card, but sadly the Magnum Opus of their stock was already sold out: the Hieronymous Bosch collection with prints of the ultimate surrealist’s Heaven and Hell on the boots, bags, and oxfords. I’ve now got eBay alerts set up for any of the line to show up in my size, but I think they will exist only in my fetishistic dreams.
Instead, I’ve narrowed it down to these styles, with Persephone in the lead.

I haven’t owned a pair of Docs since middle school, so I honestly cannot remember if they’re the most comfortable and durable things ever or if they’re the worst thing since bondage pants (seriously now, we ALL tripped over those straps at least once). Anyone out there walking for miles in these daily?
