The It Boot of the Season Is More Versatile Than You Thought

Under a sea of dad sneakers and other ugly shoes, another trend has managed to emerge. Worn by fashion bloggers, models, and celebrities alike, the Dr. Martens Jadon boots are an old-school staple that’s recently been taking Instagram by storm, quickly becoming one of the most popular pairs of shoes on the web.

In fact, #DrMartens has been mentioned close to two million times on Instagram over the last three months. Online searches for the English brand were even up by 110% this quarter, and the Jadon boots rapidly made it all the way to the top of everyone’s wishlist.

Why, you ask? Well, let’s start with the most obvious: however people style them, the Jadon boots look uber cool. Thanks to their chunky sole, they give that extra height you might be lusting after, while still being comfortable. And if those laces scare you, don’t panic: they actually come with a zipper on the inner ankle.

With most models retailing under £180 ($200), it’s easy to see why these combat boots have gained such a cult following. But before you decide to finally treat yourself to a pair, check out 15 ways to style them, ahead.
