Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the past couple of weeks, then you probably know about Dr. Martens teaming up with Cartoon Network to bring us a very exciting collection for Adventure Time!
I knew about this collection coming out nearly a year ago. How? I tried for an apprenticeship at Dr. Martens in Nottingham, which I sadly didn’t get. On the day where I had my practical assessments and interview I saw the Adventure Time boots in there and of course I had to ask about them. They told me they would be coming out soon and when a few months later I asked in the Birmingham store about them, that’s when I found out they would be out for S/S 15.
The designs that they had when I eyed them up were the three pairs that have come out, which are Jake, Finn and a pair with loads of prints of Jake and Finn. However there was also two other pairs that haven’t come out with this collection, which were Marceline and Gunter. I can imagine these will be out A/W 15 or S/S 16.
If you haven’t seen these beauties yet, then I’m going to show you!
The promotional video for this is amazing and I like how they’ve incorporated their #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign with Finn and Jake.
Not only are these out for adults, but they’re out for kids too which aren’t cheap at £80 a pair! This being said the children’s pairs are super cute and I wish I could buy a pair to later on in life dress my own kid in.
These are unisex boots so come in sizes 3-13 in UK sizes, and this includes half sizes for 6 and 9 too.
So you can imagine my excitement when Dr. Martens officially came out with their news about the boots coming out. This being said, I’m on a spending ban and £130 is now a lot to me as I don’t earn much since cutting my hours down for uni.
I knew from seeing them at Dr. Martens in Nottingham all those months ago that I wanted either the Jake or Marceline pair. So I’ve always had my eye on them.
This collection officially went on sale on Monday and already the Jake pair have sold out, which hardly surprises me. The only pairs left are the Finn and Finn & Jake boot. I’m sure these will be available this time next week.
You can imagine how gutted I was when I saw the Jake boot has sold out, as these are said to have been made in limited numbers, so people who are still after these boots might not even get a pair now…
So I was double gutted, one because I couldn’t afford the boots in the first place and now the pair I want is sold out. Knowing how upset I was my boyfriend kindly offered to buy me the Jake pair as a “congratulations on finishing uni” present, which I course I won’t be allowed to have until September… Which I can deal with! At least I would have a pair!
So at this moment in time, we should now have them! I rang the Dr. Martens store in Birmingham and asked if they had any pairs in my size left and luckily they have ONE LEFT! They kindly reserved them for me for when I pop in today and I couldn’t help but be super excited for today so that I can finally get my hands on this pair.
Seeing as I’m not allowed them until September, I don’t know if I’ll be writing a post about these before then… I’m hoping I’ll be allowed to but my boyfriend has been really strict on when I can have these, and I can understand why. They’re an early present, but not early enough I can have them now! Damn!
Either way I haven’t been so excited for a collection in a long time and Dr. Martens pulled a good move bringing this collection out.
One thing I would say about this collection is that IF you want a pair, get down to your local store soon or order online (if you can of course) as soon as possible as these are going fast.
I do have a feeling they’ll bring out another soon, as I said before. In said collection I would love to see some Lumpy Space Princess boots! It would be cool to see some Fiona boots too, but I can’t see this happening.
What do you think of the Adventure Time collection? Do you love it, do you hate it? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time, take care all!
