    My husband loves his DM boots. He has a black pair and a cherry red pair. They are comfortable and he doesn't cause any bovver in them.

    Can't say I've ever found them as comfortable as the makers like to think they are, but they serve their purpose, and have become iconic. Leave them be or I'll kick yer head in.

    Yes, you can. But you still teeter a bit and that's not very kick-ass.

    My steel-toecapped boots are THE most comfortable boots and I could wear them all day without problem (have done). Erm.... have I said this before somewhere? It seems a bit familiar...

    LOVE the boots with red roses. As a Lancastrian (Liverpool where I was born was in Lancashire back then!!) how could I fail not to love them.

    For years I preferred monkey boots - they weren't so heavy and I could run faster (came in handy every now and again)
