Why, yes, they are Doc Martens with Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights on them — the happy parts of that triptych, anyway. I got them because my birthday is this Saturday (don’t say “happy birthday” yet, I’ll post a birthday post then) and I thought these were pretty cool. Also, although you probably don’t know it, I have a history of interesting shoes. These are the latest.
I asked Athena what she thought of them. “They look like bowling shoes,” she said. Yes. The most awesome bowling shoes ever.
