Transparent Doc Martens: trust us, the world doesn’t need to see your feet

Doc_martens

It could be worse. We know it’s hard to imagine what could possibly be worse than transparent Doc Marten style boots with multi-coloured socks underneath, but picture this: bare feet, sweating in plastic on a hot day. Yes, it could be worse – so very much worse. We’re not sure where these boots came from, and we think we’d probably prefer to leave it that way, but suffice to say that they’re probably not real Doc Martens, but if you’ve seen them around, feel free to tell us where they’re from. Just don’t approach them – they could be dangerous…

    Mary Quant made plastic boots which you could see colourful pantyhose through in the late 60s.

    i agree that they are not exactly beautiful, but the POINT is that knitters buy these boots so they can show off the labor-intensive socks they have made!

    “hide it under a bushel? no! i’m gonna show my socks!”

    this post is shallow. They’re perfect because you can buy em and change your socks to change the color of your boots. This way you don’t have to buy different ones!
