Shoe of the Week: Doc Martens

In the same way that all things 80’s and 90’s have returned to high fashion for the past few seasons, it’s no surprise that Dr. Martens (or ‘Doc’ Martens) have in turn come back to grace the runways this season. Doc Martens were once the ultimate accessories, a fashion statement that was thought to never come back again — much like leg warmers, shoulder pads, leggings, high-waisted jeans and big bows. But the “never-again” trends of the 80’s and 90’s have defied protest and returned with a roar — and in the form of Doc Martens.

Doc Martens’ style is inspired by military and hardware, two themes that have been consistently spotted this season on runways and in magazines.

Doc Martens have hit it big amongst young Hollywood celebrities, and have been spotted on stars like Dakota Fanning and Emma Roberts.

Doc Martens are made of materials that provide durability and comfort. The boots accent any outfit; they come in an wide array of colors and can spice up a girlie outfit or be casual when paired with a big sweater and jeans. And for those girlie-girls out there who still want in on this fabulous 80s revamp, Doc Martens come in the classic boot but with different floral prints and metallic textures. Whether we could anticipate a resurge in past decades’ styles or not, one thing’s for sure: we couldn’t bring back the 80’s without a classic shoe that turns gives any outfit a fashionable edge.
