TO SPIKE OR NOT TO SPIKE

Jun 19, 2009

that is the question.




so here are my Yohji Yamamoto for Doc Martens boots. they used to be the silver color that the insole is there, but i knew i'd get much more wear out of them if they were black (duh), so i had them professionally dyed. i had planned all along to spike the shit out of them like the junya boots i so covet below, but now that they've been dyed and i see them in all their black glory, i'm sort of into the plain-ness of them. what do you think?

maybe i'll just buy these from eBay and spike them instead.


yeah that's a better plan. i think?

i agree. spike the ebay ones. your store is called "shop it right now"- that's pretty frickin' clever right there! also, what's the deal with you and ji getting rid of your wang stuff? is he over? please say no, my BF bought me that burnout sweater (he bought it in march and gave it to me for my bday a few couple of weeks ago) and i can't stop wearing it even though it is very clearly last season.

Spike the shit out of them!!!
I like the first two junya boots more than the last ones...so should you get the ebay ones and spike them do the front only?!
And why not wear a studded belt/garter thing for shoes (what are they called?? mind just blanked..too many afternoon cocktails to cool down) and wear then on the docs and see how you wear them more...with or without the belty thing.And right there you have your answer then

i think i would stud the second pair, they would look very similar to the chloe susans with some studs :)

Oh Junya..he's amazing. The first pair look great simple! I love the western cowboy feeling of the second pair, which is perfect for studs! Although, I'm sure you've figured that out by now..haha love the blog!
