The good news: I bought my very first pair of Dr Martens. When I saw these all-white ones I knew they had to be mine. You might even remember them from an outfit wish list I posted a while back. So when ASOS slashed their price by 50% it was as if the online shopping gods were aligning.
The bad news: They’re too big and I’ll have to return them. In my haste to purchase them, I failed to cross check the ASOS size guide with the Dr Martens one. I was under the impression I had ordered my usual size AU10/UK8/EU41 but they were actually an EU42. Sad face. I can’t even exchange them for a smaller size because they’re sold out. Super sad face. I’ve toyed with the idea of insoles and wearing thick socks but my brain is just telling me to cut my losses and return them.
So I’ll just use this post to document the time I had a pair of super cool Docs and to reinforce the importance of being vigilant with size guides when it comes to online shopping.
