Few footwear brands have managed to pull off consistent cool factor quite like Dr. Martens. While the label originated in the early 20th century, things really took off amidst the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s. The iconic boot became synonymous with London’s underground punk scene as well as working-class style and a general non-conformist attitude. Fast forward over fifty years and the brand has stayed relevant, inspiring new generations with its iconic aesthetic.

Dr. Martens boots are undoubtedly among the more legendary styles from the brand, but you'll also find other silhouettes and colors that feel equally as wearable (namely, the oxfords). In any case, whether your personal aesthetic swings in an edgy direction or you like a more romantic look, there’s a way to wear Dr. Martens for everyone. Ahead, see 15 Dr. Martens outfit ideas to get you started.
