Top 3 Dr Martens Boots I Couldn’t Live Without

Top 3 Dr Martens Boots I Couldn’t Live Without

Featured Top 3 Dr Martens

Oh, Dr Martens, how I love thee. In fact, I love them so much, I wish I had more feet so I could wear more of them at once. Say what you like about spiders, but if those little tinkers could wear shoes, they’d have it pretty good.

In total, I own ten pairs of Dr Martens. Eight of those are boots, and two are shoes. I got it into my head that it would be a good idea to share three of my favourite pairs of boots with you. Although I have a tendency to write about deeper issues, I fancied doing something else that I could have a little fun with. However, doing this task felt like a parent being asked to pick their favourite child. Despite my struggle, I’ve managed to pick my top three.

1. Dr Martens 1460 Portland Rose White Boots

These were the first pair of Dr Martens that I ever owned. I had seen them when I was shopping but couldn’t afford them. I asked for them for my birthday and my wonderful big sister came through for me (as she often does!) One evening, a lot of snow had fallen so my sister and I decided to go for an adventure. That’s when I discovered that Dr Martens are fantastic for walking on snow and ice. I’ve been relying on them every winter since.

The best thing about that night was that my sister and I ended up making snow angels on a roundabout. Between that memory, and these boots being the start of my collection, they’ve got a very special place in my heart.

2. Dr Martens 1460 Lumpy Space Princess Boots

If you’re reading this and you happen to be an Adventure Time fan, I imagine I don’t really need to explain any further. If you’re not an Adventure Time or are not familiar with it, JUST LOOK AT THEM! They’re still pretty cute, right? When Dr Martens first started releasing the Adventure Time boots, they didn’t include LSP. I was heartbroken and, if I’m honest, a little bit outraged that they had the cheek to miss out my favourite character.

Nevertheless, I didn’t give up hope. I made a promise to myself to keep money aside so that I could get them straight away. I kept my fingers and toes crossed. Dr Martens didn’t disappoint (which is just as well, as I don’t know if our relationship would have recovered). I screamed the house down when they were released and bought them without hesitation.

These are the most comfortable ones that I own. The material is so soft and squishy! Sometimes, Dr Martens boots can be quite stiff and often it takes a little bit of breaking in before they’re comfortable. That wasn’t an issue with these, which only made me love them more. They’re also the ones I get the most compliments on. No matter where I go, there’s usually at least one person who stops me to say that they love my boots.

3. Dr Martens 1460 Pascal Glitter Boots

For the most part, I’m not really a girly girl. Glitter doesn’t appeal to me. That is, of course, unless you put them all over some Dr Martens boots. It helped that, when I bought them, I had a phone case that was very similar. Some things are just meant to be. As you can imagine, I don’t need much persuasion to purchase another pair of Dr Martens, so I’ll justify my choices with any excuse. I’m not sure how convinced my boyfriend was by my logic, but he humoured me anyway.

I absolutely adore wearing these when it’s sunny. The picture doesn’t do justice to how sparkly they are! The first time I wore them, the sun was beaming down so, every couple of minutes, I’d nudge my boyfriend and say “look at them! Look how much they sparkle!” I was mesmerised. Typing that now, I wonder what passers-by must have thought. At the time, I was too engrossed in my glistening boots to notice anything else.

If you’re interested, they do also come in others colours like black* and pastel rainbow*.

Bonus: Dr Martens 1460 Pascal Flower Boots

Okay, I didn’t manage to stick to three, but there’s a good reason for these ones being snuck in! These are the most recent addition to the collection. While they are AMAZING, it’s more the story that goes with them that means they had to be included somewhere. I had spotted these on Schuh’s website and immediately fallen in love. They were a little pricey so I reasoned with myself that I didn’t need another pair right now. As any shoe addict will know, it’s hard when you fall in love with a pair of shoes and can’t have them. So, I moped a little.

A week later, my boyfriend popped home on his lunch break. This wasn’t unusual, so I didn’t think anything of it. Once he’d gone back to work, he sent me a text to say there was a present in the bedroom for me. I know you’ve guessed the ending already, but it was these beauties! Happy days! It was one of those little moments in life where I felt so giddy, I thought I was going to explode.

I always go a little bit weak at the knees for any floral Dr Martens, but I was completely taken with the 3D flowers on these ones. I think it makes them a little bit more unusual so I’m delighted I’ve got a pair to call my own! If you’ve got to have them, too, they’re available at Schuh*.

    • ruthinrevolt 4th May 2018 at 11:59 am

      Thank you!

  • Indya | The Small Adventurer 4th May 2018 at 8:47 am

    I have always wanted a pair of Doc Martens, but could never justify spending that price. Those Rose White ones are super gorgeous though 😍

    • ruthinrevolt 4th May 2018 at 11:58 am

      You should definitely treat yourself to a pair if you can!

  • Leslie 8th May 2018 at 10:26 pm

    Ahhh! I audibly gasped when I saw the Lumpy Space Princess pair! I love Dr Martens and I know I’m 2 seasons early, but I’m already thinking about stocking up for fall. You should include links to buy them!

    • ruthinrevolt 8th May 2018 at 10:46 pm

      Yessss! They’re amazing.

      That’s okay – I buy them all year round. You should definitely stock up and then show me pictures haha!

      I had planned to put in links but I couldn’t find most of them online anymore. 🙁

  • Sofia Larionova 30th June 2018 at 8:32 am

    Thanks for sharing I love the design of Pascal Flower Boots.

    • ruthinrevolt 30th June 2018 at 9:39 am

      Aww, thanks for reading!

  • Laura 5th August 2018 at 7:02 pm

    Dr Martens are really everywhere, but I have never ever worn them in my life! I mean I haven’t even worn converse or vans! But dr martens low cut shoe thingies are on my list of things to get in life. I guess I’m just too used to getting cheap pairs of shoes!
