I’m breaking in my new Doc Martin’s today. It’s not pleasant. One of the things I took for granted while borrowing Cathy’s all the time was that they were crazy comfortable because she broke ‘em in for me. Ah well, I envision Tyra showing up with a halo and fog around her, telling me that being fashionable aint supposed to be comfy. I have a month to break them in before London (28 days by the way EEK!) and I’m thinking more and more that I made the right decision about buying them early. It’s funny, to think I was going to buy these months ago in January but decided to put that money into savings and go to London instead. Then last week I borrowed Cathy’s Docs again and it made me want my own SO BADLY. I was originally going to buy some whist in London at the flagship store in Camden, but the need became too dire and the more I thought about it, with the exchange rate and all, it makes more sense to get them at home (especially with free shipping and no tax when you buy online). Now that I’m breaking them in, and in crazy pain, I remember the girl who bought new shoes in the Paris class and subsequently spent the rest of the trip bitching about her feet hurting. I don’t want that to be my holiday in London. I've got a big city to walk around in! So best to break them in now, be in pain Seattle so I can be in ecstasy in London!*

*many subsequent posts will involve my excitement for London, sorry if it gets boring to read. Those who remember how I acted before visiting Paris and New York, same thing. My
apologies in advance.

I need to get back to breaking mine in too. I wore my 3-hole Doc dress shoes twice can got blisters on the back of my heel/achilles tendon area.

I know, right?
That's exactly where these shoes are killing me! Damn Docs! But I'm sorta in love with 'em--can kinda understand abusive relationships a little bit more now.

No pics?

With all the walking you do, you'll have bloody nubs by the time you break them in but those puppies will fit like a glove for your trip.
