A while back ago I wrote a post about what appeared to be floral vegan doc martens. Since the uppers were fabric and the sole rubber I unfortunately assumed. A kind commenter informed me of my error and others kindly informed me that they had contacted doc martens customer service and been told about an upcoming vegan line.
Well, it’s here.
Though it is only four styles, high and low, in red and black, this is a most promising and happy development, for animal loving doc marten fans.
They call it the Vegan 1460. Find them here:
I think I prefer the black boot version. Which do you prefer?
Now for a fashion inspiration board:
What do Doc Martens make you think of?
The thing that comes to my mind is My So Called Life and 90s grunge style. Digging deeper I find that the shoes are THE shoe for both grunge style and punk style, popularized by Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder, and also The Who, The Clash and The Sex Pistols.
Here is a good blog post about doc martens to learn more.
