what is it with me and zips?
I have been having a frustrating time with my boots lately, all down to their zips. Firstly, I bought these gorgeous boots last winter and they are great, so cosy and comfortable, and long lasting as they are actually doc martens. But a couple of months ago one of the zips broke, so I took it in to be mended, which involved it being sent away and quite a lot of money. I waited very patiently for my boot to come back, having been told 2-3 weeks, only to find out after 3.5 weeks that they had only sent it off a few days ago. I was not happy! But I eventually got it back and all was great again. Then in December I bought these boots, which are also doc martens, and again are really comfy and just that bit smarter for work. And can you believe it, but one of the zips is broken already, I am waiting at the moment for the shoe shop to receive the replacement pair they have ordered for me. And that is not all, last week the other zip went in my brown boots! After their mess up with the first boot they did this for me free of charge and in super quick time which was wonderful, until they put the wrong postcode on the parcel back to me and it ended up in Ireland! Can you believe it. But miraculously they did get to me, I am now considering never buying boots with zips ever again! : )
