Dr Martens for Geeks

posted in: Fashion, Review | 1

Flicking through my April issue of Glamour magazine at the weekend I saw something that really made me smile.  The fact that it made me smile makes me a massive geek.  Dr Martens had a little QR code in the bottom left of their advertisement.

It’s the first QR code I’ve noticed in a magazine advertisement and I obviously wanted to know what it would take me to.  So I quickly used Red Laser on my iPhone and it took me here:

Well it worked, because I love the shoes and I neeeeeeeed them!  Although maybe baby pink isn’t my colour… so I ended up spending a bit of time on the website.  I love my DMs and currently have a couple of pairs – a purple satin-finish 8-eye pair, and some black 10-eye stee toes.  But right now, thanks to this advert and it appealing to my geeky nature, I really want a new pair.  Here’s my Docs wish list (clicking on each pic should take you to the relevant Dr Martens web page)…

Ok so I almost certainly can’t pull off all of those Docs… and I’m not sure if I actually like the Pascals but they definitely are striking.  The ones I need most in my life right now?  The Triumph 1914 – pleeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssseeeeeee????!
