I had initially thought to wear ghillie brogues (for a better pic, check out the ones modeled by James's cousin here), since they're sort of considered standard with kilts, but they tend towards the ornate and formal, which doesn't really fit the look we're shooting for. Since I'm wearing an 18th century-style kilt, the other option was to go with period buckle shoes comme celles-ci. Just a little too Plymouth Rock, though.
So I decided to turn to Doc Martens and see what they had to offer. I came up with these three options, which arrived today:
I didn't specifically go into this looking for shoes that were so similar, so it was interesting to see how directed my tastes were - same basic outline and even the same lining for all three of these styles. I'd love to keep all of these because they all look fabulous, but I need to narrow the decision down to just one. I think David and I are pretty firmly in agreement on the one we like best, but I thought I'd throw it out to the rest of y'all to see what everyone else thinks. So go vote already!
