These boots were made for walkin'.

I purchased this pair of Doc Martin's boots in March 2007.

I have worn the heck out of them. I finally got around to replacing them this past week.

I don't know that I've ever had a pair of shoes to last three years before. Especially taking into account what I put shoes through.

I really wanted to get another pair just like these, but there was one thing stopping me. Waterproofing.

These weren't. And when they got wet, my feet got soaked. And I got miserable.

I had picked out a pair of shoes. I wore them one night on the job at the college and I took them back the next morning. They just hurt my feet.

When I took the others back, I found some more boots on an isle I had missed the day before. I liked the look of them, then I saw the magic label "waterproof."

I tried them on, and that was that. They are a pair of Skechers, sorry don't know which model.

They are some of the most comfortable boots I've ever worn.

And with all the snow we've gotten today, I am definitely loving the waterproofing.
