Feels Like a Steal: This Iconic Combat Boot Gets a Wintry Update 

  • 5859

A Dr. Martens black lace-up boot is a timeless classic with staying power similar to that of a Converse sneaker or a Birkenstock sandal. It only gets better with age. The grungy boot is a go-to among celebrities—everyone from Bella Hadid to Diane Kruger. Even Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’s grand-nieces count as fans: The two were seen holding hands with Madame Vice President after her victory speech this past Saturday while wearing white versions with black laces. 

And while the original Dr. Martens 1460 lace-up is a super-durable option for all seasons and occasions, the faux-fur-lined offerings for the winter season should not be overlooked. With an overwhelming amount of trendy and expensive winter-boot options on the market each season, there’s really no going wrong by sticking to a reliable classic that costs a fraction of the price. Plus, since these boots are winter-fied versions of the classic and a familiar silhouette, they’ll seamlessly fit in with the rest of your winter wardrobe, and it won’t feel like you’re wearing a clunky or ugly snow boot. The shoe comes in the signature Dr. Martens black grain leather and top stitching as well as a worn-in-looking brown

At $160, a pair would make a great addition to your own winter footwear rotation or a cozy gift for a family member this holiday season. The fuzzy, faux-fur interior will be sure to keep your feet warm and toasty all winter long, while the exterior was designed to withstand the season’s unpredictable elements. The best part? Dr. Martens have a reputation for lasting, well, forever and here’s proof—albeit no shearling lining, my mom still wears the same pair she bought in college. Talk about cost per wear. Practical, timeless, and better with age, these faux-fur-lined Dr. Martens winter boots feel like a steal for more reasons than one.
