Smelly Trainers and Doc Mits
So just as in art then also in fashion we have to accept that our own views are not definitive, others have taste just as valid as our own, just different. Our taste is also influenced by associations, getting back to my shoe theme, I don't currently possess a pair of trainers, because I am no longer in training! When I was actively involved in sport and had to train I had a couple of pairs of trainers (two so one could dry out while I was using the other pair) so for me trainers have always been shoes to wear for training. Most people I know wear them as casual shoes, for me the association is with running, I prefer dockers for casual wear.
Of course Dr Martens have moved beyond the simple Cherry Red or Black boot now with lots of colours and patterns, they are now often seen on the feet of the young beautiful and stylish, however the design is pretty much the same as the original.
