There’s a reason why Dr. Martens is such a well-known brand that has stayed at the forefront of all the latest shoe trends. Over the years the English company, founded in 1947, has developed successful collaborations with Marc Jacobs, Keith Haring, Lazy Oaf and Jean-Michel Basquiat to name a few. Docs are more relevant than ever, with models, editors and creatives turning the brand’s combat boots and cleated loafers into seasonal wardrobe staples that help achieve a quintessentially ’90s vibe. Docs complete a variety of looks, from a breezy sundress to jeans and a t-shirt to oversized suits. Their versatility makes them a transitional shoe that’s worth the investment.

while dr Martens has remained fairly faithful to the classic combat boot – constantly reinventing the wheelhouse when it comes to creating slight variations on the silhouette – other footwear labels have taken note and adapted the look. Prada’s chunky loafer, for example, with the metal logo on the upper, is inspired by the same decade, while Ganni has developed quirky details for the beloved shoe, such as buckle closures instead of laces and a creeper-style rubber sole.

Whether you’re specifically looking for a pair of Docs or want to check out a wide range of retailers making similar styles, here are some shoes for you.
