Thanks so much, I'ts probably a good idea to polish them up a little, and I'm definitely relacing the laces.

How about making boot covers?? But in a different color/pattern, with lace, ribbon....why not make corset lacing up the fronts...I'm thinking pink velvety material, white ribbon and white lace on the sides of the lacing up part...http://www.moonmaiden-gothic-clothing.co.uk/moonmaiden-index/corsets/mmm19/mmm19.htm

I've had the same problem, in fact I traded half a bottle of whiskey for my old dr. martens, and that's simply not the life i lead anymore.

However, I wouldn't trade them for the world, think of all the places those shoes have been! And so many more placces they will go!
 To further sing the praises of good ol' docs:  I was told "now you bring some sensible footwear" when on my way to Italy a few years ago. We only went for a few days, and EVERYONE brought white, expensive, name-brand walking sneakers (which is the numero Uno sign that says 'you are a tourist, you have money' to any ne'r-do-wells) and I brought my docs and some pairs of thick socks. At the end of every rainy night my co-vacationers had sopping wet feet and most of them started getting colds, while I had water halfway up my jeans and was completely oblivious with comfy, toasty toes.

Maybe you don't need to change your shoes as much as your view of them. I see my docs as ice and snow lifesavers. I'm not the most graceful lady but the tread on the bottom plus the gauntlet of leather around your leg (paired with some tall socks) makes your feet impervious to wet and cold. Now if you have good gloves and a good hat, you've won the battle on keeping in your precious body heat during the winter season!

But as far as dressing them up goes, I've been covering them with legwarmers that I've made from old sweater sleeves. If you get belled legwarmers in a big size, they look so cute with black toes sticking out of them. Change your outlook from "hot topic" to "anime chic" (cause they make yous ankles look tiny and showcase great calves), pairing your docks with a button up shirt (and a tie, perhaps?) under a v-neck sweater with some hot jeans and you're good to go.

PLUS! (oh yeah, there's more!) those boots with a little bit of a heel can make you look long and lean (and pick your jeans hem off of the floor). Try wearing them with trouser pants, or a black dress... just play dress up and find out what you can do

first things first, legwarmers will totally change your boot style, good luck!

p.s.

go to your local army surplus store and get some black boot laces. They hold up better and look ten times better than the manufacturer's laces. They make the boots more comfortable, too

Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, it's not your fault.
They won't take you to the vet,
You're probably not their favorite pet.
You may not be a bed of roses
And you're no friend to those with noses
