The funny thing about the Docs is that people, men in particular, get all rhapsodical about it. I went to a friend's the other day and this friend of his kept going on about it with a maniacal gleam in his eye. Very unnerving. Does it mean something to wear Docs? I do it just because it is comfortable.
Plus you never know when you might have to kick someone or make a run for it, or both. Be prepared, that's my motto.
