There is something to be said about visual branding. The yellow laces. Because when that Russian girl stepped on my train at BWI Airport, jabbering loudly on her phone and wearing these boots . . . I knew I had to have them and I knew exactly where to buy them. They'll be arriving in the mail sometime this week. They're lined with wool on the inside. And if you didn't know, they'll be kicking longer than you and I will, most likely. My first pair of Doc Martens, I bought when I was 14. It's the classic mary jane style and recently I dusted them off. It's funny how we always come back to the things we love.
