Shoes: Dr Martens (Wollasten Doc shop), Jeans: BDG, Jacket: Topshop, Jumper: Topshop, Beanie: Zara
I'm going to tell you how I got a pair of £255 gold Dr Martens for £35, that were destined for cirque du soleil to wear whilst dancing for Madonna at the super bowl in America!
I went on a tour of the Dr Marten factory in Wollaston about 6/7 months ago,
because I'm sad and have
no friends because Dr
Martens are my favourite type of shoes, and I was interested to see how they
were made. Whilst on the tour I saw a guy cutting out some pieces of gold
leather, I asked the manager of the factory about them and he said that they
had just finished an order of 12 gold boots for cirque du soleil to wear whilst
dancing for Madonna at the super-bowl I asked him how much they
would be to buy and he replied £255.
I think you can imagine my reaction. If not here is a highly scientific diagram that was created by Dr Rose using MS paint.
Anyway after a couple of months of therapy, I returned to the Doc Shop like an alcoholic that had just fallen of the wagon, hit there head and rolled into the cheap wine aisle of Tesco.
They were the first things I saw, it was like in movies when two people run in slow motion towards each other, either that or there was something different about the mushrooms I had for breakfast.
After some deep breaths and prayers, I looked at the price tag, and they were £35!!
I tried them on and they fit perfectly, I looked in the tongue and they had been marked 5/12 meaning that they were the fifth pair to have been made for cirque du soleil, there must have been something wrong with them for them to end up in the shop but I can’t see anything that isn't perfect, but then they do say that love is blind.
