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! : )

How frustrating!

Maybe you should suggest to Doc Martens that they change their zip supplier? That would probably put me off by DM's again, but they are rather lovely looking boots!

I broke the heel off my favourite boots once, and they were sent back to Italy to be fixed, I was sure I'd never see them again, but they came back really quickly and all lovely and good as new. But I rarely wear them now, just in case ;)

Never say never! They are just too cute! Maybe you need to purchase a back up pair of each next time :)

Frustrating! I seem to have that same curse with pant zippers!

Annoying! You've got great taste in boots, though. Didn't know there was such a thing as comfort and looks.

Those are nice boots...but if without zip, how to wear them esp if they are that high? We hardly wear boots here, it will be walking with sauna feet hehehe :D

Grrr, zip hate!

Hey Harriet said...

Yup, stick with laced-up Docs. I do! Although those ones are very gorgeous. I've not seen zipped Docs over here. I love Docs. They are the best boots ever! Except for the zips of course...
