Playing the schoolgirl in Dr Martens boots

Rebel against t-bar strap shoes and Mary Janes by pulling on a pair of Dr Martens boots!

This is me badly channeling a sort of schoolgirl look because after just a year I have forgotten what it feels like to be kept in the iron clutches of school routine.

I certainly never wore Dr Martens to school but with black lace ups being technically on the shoe list I could have gotten away with them for at least my senior year and decorated them with stickers but it appears that idea is now two years too late. But it’s not too late for you!

Rebel against t-bar strap shoes and Mary Janes that everyone else has and don’t forget what our punk forefathers fought for!

Newcastle High School

Newcastle High School might be located in the middle of New South Wales, but t-bar school shoes are still on their list of acceptable footwear for senior students.

The school expects that students wear closed in leather, lace-up style shoes. They must cover the top of the foot and have a small heel. Full leather thick strap T-Bar Mary-Jane shoes are acceptable.

Students MUST NOT wear skate shoes, black soft ‘ballet’ style shoes, open styled ‘Mary Jane’ shoes, canvas shoes or any similar.

Dr Martens triple strap t-bar shoes

Not one strap. Not two. But three straps. These are the Dr Martens ‘Freya Aunt Sally’ t-bar shoes.

Dr. Martens Polley t-bar shoes

Dr. Martens has their own version of the classic t-bar shoe – ‘Polley’.
