I am happy to admit I am an ambassador, lover and groupie for the hard-wearing, dream shoe that is the Dr. Marten. These patent bad boys kept me company through the awkward teenage years, painful first loves and tiring, festival seasons. They are my wardrobe's oldest friend and I am pretty sure there is very little else from the mid 2000's still lingering around in there.

At first thought, parting with £100 for some heavy duty boots has somewhat of a sting but any Dr. Marten parent knows, they are worth every penny. Even better? They do ridiculously generous sales to the extent you're basically robbing them blind. Check out my favourite styles above and snap those babies up, you won't regret it.
