Doc Marten Joy

It's the littlest things that can make me so very happy.

I had this pair of shoes. Doc Martens. 3-eyelet with a little cap toe. Fit my foot like they were moulded to it. I had worn them most every day for 5 years. They were the perfect shoes. When I saw Amelie, I noticed she was wearing a shoe in an almost identical style. Really, I loved these shoes.

Then I left them one night at the South Bay Ceili at St. Stephen's Green. I called the next day, but they hadn't seen them. I stopped by on the way home from work. They were gone. I was actually heartbroken at losing these shoes.

So for the past couple of years, I've searched Doc Marten's websites and other shoe sites and even eBay searching for a replacement for my shoes. I've bought similar shoes, but none measured up. So then a friend posted about the shoes she bought herself for her birthday, and I happened to look one more time. After eBay, I searched Google and clicked on one link at the top which took me to a list of Docs, and there, right there, was a shoe that looked much like mine. I clicked on it, and found yes, it was very very similar. And they had two pairs left, one in my size. I can't wait til they arrive next week. Then I can start the process of breaking them in, and hopefully, with a little luck, they will become my new favorite shoes.
