Ahhh so beautiful! I am in love. Docs have a bit of a reputation for causing lots of breaking in pain, but actually, I've not had any. I've been very diligent about wearing thicker socks, as well as neoprene ankle supports underneath. I bought these for a quid each at the recommendation of one of the roller girls to help with breaking in my skates. (They were a life saver, my boots are vinyl and very stiff. I had blisters beyond anything I have ever experienced. It was gross.) They are just as awesome with my new boots, and my feets are very happy feets indeed!
