I am a complete fan of Church's - workmanship and style that will last you years of wear. Church's are a brand of shoe you see selling for the same price new as second hand! These shoes you will have in your capsule wardrobe for many years onwards towards decades.
You will completely adore the lace-up feature with the quick and easy side zip option - perfectly balanced in design, style and practicality.
Having owned somewhere up from 6 pairs of Doc Boots aka Dr Marten's black ankle boots I can assure you - these are worthwhile.
What I like about Doc Boots is their rugged quality yet stylish character. Street style favourite of the moment but always a favourite with those who love an alternative personal style. The all-black 1460 mono is my favourite in the current range and a must-have in my capsule wardrobe.
