    I did and I'm well under 40! I was copying my trendy older sister though. And I remember a friend of hers who had a cat called Mary Chain McMonkey Boots... Right On!

    Frickin Jebus. I had forgotten all about these. I used to wear slightly cooler suede ones during the warmer school months and the obligatory Dr Martens boots throughout the year. Both styles dyed your white socks grey. Brilliant, this has made my day.

    Never had Monkey Boots, DMs had to do me.
     
  8. They are still available, look in the back of 'Scooter' magazine.

    Well I'm pushing 45 and had Monkey Boots first and then DM's when my Dad got promoted. I think it only applies to those who went to State schools John. :biggrin::biggrin:

    I must have been going through a different boot stage when they were on the go, as I don't remember them. Perhaps I was pixie-boot wearing at the time :biggrin::biggrin:
