    Always a problem. I desperately need some 1490 smooths, but I have some really nice 1490s in soft leather, and can't wear two pairs at once. I need some brown shoes for work , but can't get away with yellow stitching, so what do I go for? And how do I get away with spending more money on DMs without OH getting really pissed off. Problems, problems. Oh well, best check ebay.....

    This is sacrilege...but if you do decide to get brown 1490s....I'm going to advise you to use brown polish on them...it will colour the stitching brown and you'll be able to wear them to work. :(

    They're good value at the moment aren't they? :)
    Fingers crossed they stay low...

    I'm not counting on it! But there's only one bidder and it was a late night bid, so wait and see. I'm poised for a bidding war after work tomorrow.

    I think they're an Award Pair, so there will be only that pair in existence.

    It wasn't to be. Pipped at the post. I didn't want to get involved in a bidding war, so put my number in and went away. Bugger.

    Thing about extra special DMS....you tend to save them and only wear them occasionally if ever.

    Sorry :( Keep looking, though - always worth searching for 'Dr Martens Award' on ebay, sometimes they come up.

    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    Been lusting after DMs on t'interweb for ages because of this thread. The Mrs just got back from a day out with these in her bag. Twenty squids from a charidee shop.

    I swore I'd wait til winter to buy another pair of DMs...but then a pair I've been waiting for ages to get popped up on ebay...(only at the right price mind)
    I cannot look at any more DMs now til at least 2018.
    All alerts are switched off...and I'll have to avoid certain threads for a while....

    Got a pair of vonda... :D
    And cant wait for them to arrive...

    Great collection there...:)
    I suspect I dont have half as many as moose. If I count the new ones they've not arrived yet...I think I've got 16 pairs :eek: (got to stop soon)
    I'll have to root em all out and find a space to photograph them. I keep them all in their boxes. It'll be a good idea anyway to photograph them in case I ever have to sell a few.
    Will sort it Monday...i'm heading away tomorrow til Sunday night.
    I suspect it will take a while and I may end up only photographing one boot from each pair as floor space is...ahem...limited.


    I dont think I've reached the stage of buyjng two of the same pair by mistake....yet...If/when I do I'll take as a message from the "universe" to stop.

    :D

    Well I haven't got time to get the boots out this weekend (and I need a ladder :D ) so here's a teaser shot of just 14 shoes to keep you going.
