Shoewawa Loves: spiked, toe-cap DM boots
At the spring London Fashion Week exhibition, I remember being particularly drawn to an unexpected exhibitor: Doc Marten. The iconic British bootmaker has turned out some exceptional styles for the current and forthcoming season, including this studded toe-cap re-working of the classic Air Wear boot:
The boots are adorned with a stylish 'crackle' paint look in white, decorated with spiked silver-toned studs. They have the same orange blanket stitch and label detailing as found on all Doctor Marten icons for as far back as we can remember! The subtle tweaks, including the toe caps and the all-white lacing are what makes this style into something more than it's punky origins suggest, and it will make a bold statement worn with next season's monochromes.
