For school shoes, I’ve been looking for a specific style for a long time now. I want chunky shoes that look kind of dressy …special agent from the Matrix meets Edward Scissorhands. I can’t find them. I can find flat, square toes or pointy roach-kicker toes, but no round, chunky toes.
I recently got an email from Dr. Martens shoe store because I’ve ordered shoes from them before. They were offering 20% off any purchase, so I decided to check out their current offerings. I really liked how their boots looked, but I didn’t want to wear boots, plus boots are against the dress code at school. What I needed was a shoe that looked like a boot. And I found it: It’s a work shoe. It looks like a boot, but it’s a slip on shoe.
So if shoes look like boots, do you call them shoots?
It’s still not quite what I’ve been looking for, but it’s close enough for now. But I’ll keep looking…
