Many women will agree, and perhaps a few men also, that great shoes have a way of lifting your mood. My left foot, in fact, stopped yelping shortly after I was told that Dr Martens boots would substantially improve my old and new Achilles tendon injuries as well as my gait if I added a special insole in it.
Well… Who can deny, indeed, just how the esteemed Dr Martens keeps on caring for an army of feet, as well as adding a whole lot of pizzazz to anyone with an alternative dress style. It meant adieu to Clarks, as even Clarks shoes could have not have saved the wretched foot if it wanted to.
My feet are now able to release a good amount of dopamine, norepinephrine, oxytocin and serotonin each time I know I’ll be wearing the black, 20-eye tall lace-up boots. They’ve become an extension of my identity. No, I’m not a punk or goth, nor am I the type that is covered in ink while cursing all day long. I’m just a kinda alternative-thinking, plain girl with extraordinary boots.
