Dr. Martens canceled my sandal order, which I thought was mighty decent of them considering it says all over the site that orders cannot be canceled, that it is impossible to cancel orders. That unfortunately, once placed, an order is returnable but not cancelable.
I feel relieved and disappointed, both, which just goes to show you how difficult I am to live with. I was in a blind panic when I discovered the sandals were men's sandals, but after Nance said in my comments section that they'd be the right size, I felt happy about them. I mean, clearly I like the sandals, because I ordered them. I'm glad to have the mess tidied up (and what if they were too wide? or too mannish after all?), but sad not to have the sandals.
Also, it's still bothering me that the sandals look so girly to me. I didn't even look to see if they were men's or women's, even though I was doing that routinely with all the sandals, because that's how unmistakably girly they looked to me. I'd like your input on this. Don't worry that I won't love you anymore if you say, "Um, those are definitely men's sandals," I want your real opinion. I will put a photo of the sandals below, and you tell me honestly if you would think they were men's, women's, or either.
Note the little heel. The cute curve of the sole. The pretty stitching. But no--don't let me influence you. Tell me what you REALLY think.
