From the desk of Racked Chicago's own defender of justice, Samm Mackin, chronicles his journey as he moseys on over to Milwaukee Ave to see what's new at the Doc Martens store.
Fall is boot season and the Doc Marten store in Wicker Park is always a go-to for the classic combat style boot. Besides the classic black and oxblood versions there are a million 2012 seasonal variations to choose from. Boots in every imaginable color populate the store. Exhibit A.: The crazy floral printed boots, a product of the Doc Marten X Liberty London collaboration.
Just in for fall are some badass studded boots in the Spike and Harlen collection and the cult-followed Doc Marten X Agyness Deyn collection. Of special note from the Deyn collab collection is the black patent leather hightop boots seen sported around by Miley Cyrus. We all love 'Merica and we all love parties, so if you want to "Party in the USA" just like the newly bleached blond starlet head on over to the Doc Marten store; Wicker's new HQ for fall boots.
