It’s 1991


Holy shit, you guys. I know Docs are hard to break in, but it’s been 20+ years and I guess I just couldn’t remember HOW hard they are to break in. This is the stiffest leather ever.


I’m going to have to get the left shoe stretched by a cobbler because the toe box is tight. The length is good and the right shoe fits just right, but the left shoe is painful after a little while. (I talked this through with the salesman. He assured me stretching is the way to go.)

BRB, I need some babydoll dresses and flannels.

    Two years later and I’m finally not getting blisters.

    I ordered a pair of 3-holes and I just couldn’t deal with the stiffness. I don’t remember my nubuck 3-holes fitting like that. They were like butter right out of the store in Canterbury. *sigh* I loved those shoes.
