In a snap yesterday, I had acquired another pair of Doc Martens. I have posted about the one with the leather strap and buckle detail last June 21 and how it was not my size. Surprisingly, the seller had the sense to properly check the insole and realized that the heatstamped number was indeed the UK size.
My mother and I were in SM Megamall yesterday when the seller has sent me a text message informing me about his illumination. I have asked if he could drop by the mall and he obliged. I just felt a bit anxious that I was buying a pair in front of my mother, when she already knew that I have four more pairs by my room!
Heatstamp in the insole of Doc Martens indicating the UK sizeIt was perfectly broken in and I don’t even need to soften the leather by the heel. I think this type of leather is the same as my other brown 8-hole pair.
So time to update this family picture with the new addition! We can no longer fit into that cabinet-background of ours!
