Doc Martens are the ultimate iconic grunge boots. From neon pink to army fatigue, we’ve seen many a color and print variation over the years, some better than others.

When my parents moved me from NYC to a small Massachusetts town in third grade, I instantly became the weird kid, owed largely to these floral-printed Docs.

When a friend spied these (unworn) Luichiny Handy Boots in… READ MORE »

I was flipping through New York magazine at the gym last night and was absolutely puzzled when I came across a small ad for something called “Bootie Pies.” These boots are made for wearing during the winter after you get a pedicure. The company means well. They don’t want your newly painted nails to get… READ MORE »

It’s time to start shopping (or lusting) for boots. Before you know it, the leaves will change colors and starting falling, the isolated thunderstorms of the summer will change to steady rain all day, and the temperature will drop, making closed-toe boots a necessity.
