What’s up Doc?
Dr. Martens boots have become a fashion essential, popping up on streets and runways alike. It’s no wonder since they’re ideal for any season to pair with jeans for a casual look or a skirt to add some punk rock vibes.
Plus, with fall upon us, it’s imperative to have boots lined up in your wardrobe for jumping in leave piles and strolls through the apple orchard, right?
The classic Docs are the ankle-length lace-up black boots, complete with their iconic yellow stitching in the sole and the little flap on the back, a helpful addition when pulling the boots on over socks or pants.
The only thing that isn’t so cute about the brand is the price tag, which, to be fair, is great for real and premium vegan leather made to last. Still, for those who can’t shell out over $100 for a pair, there are dupes that look and feel like the real deal.
What do you mean this is a dupe?
These shoes from Amazon look like the real deal, complete with the yellow stitching and black and yellow tag in the back. The only thing that sets these apart is the price tag, which is much lower compared to the $150 Dr. Martens price.
These boots from DSW are definitely a step in the right direction if you want to mimic Docs. The all black combat boots have white stitching at the sole, similar to that of the yellow that the Doctor uses. For some more fun, they also come in pink, white and an all-over silver glitter.
If you’re looking for an all-black look, check out these combat boots that mimic Dr. Martens with some slight adjustments.
These shoes are sold at Shoe Carnival and are currently on sale. They are now just $34.98, down from $59.99. The boots also come in white, so grab them both for two iconic looks for less than the price of one pair of Docs.
To get these crocodile boots, you’ll have to make it snappy. Since these booties from Boohoo are on sale for just $24 instead of the original $60, there’s no telling how long they’ll stay in stock. Right now, they are available in the black croc color, with sizes ranging from a five to a 10.
Head over to Mango for a pair of shiny shoes that definitely look like Docs. These combat boots have more of a platform sole for an added boost, but still have the black laces and pull tab in the back that make these shoes iconic.
For a white take on the classically black boots, Walmart has got you covered. From Soda, the white Doc dupes have black laces and a chunky sole to mimic the shoe, and also come in a beautiful burgundy color as well, perfect for fall.
Platforms are back in, so stay on trend with these Doc lookalike’s from Billini.
The boots are all-black-everything, from the sole to the laces and of course the platform part, too. They hit just above the ankle for the classic look and are made of rubber and synthetic materials, ranging in size from 5 to 10.
One of Dr. Martens’ other bestsellers is the Chelsea boot.
Instead of paying their price of $150, this pair is only $70 and comes from Walmart, meaning you can order it online and get free shipping. They are on sale now, down from the original $119, and come in select sizes as they are super popular (for good reason, too.)
Last but not least, for a classy look with some punk rock edge, look to the Oxford shoe.
The Dr. Martens version goes for $130, but this pair from ASOS are just $86 and have a way cool platform sole to boot. They range in size from 6 to 14 and the upper fabric is made of 100% real leather.
