An essential element to the ’80s uniform, combat boots have been an it-factor to every trendsetter and fashion lover. When Dr. Martens made its way to the streets in the ’90s, this piece became a requirement in any closet. And last year, when these boots made their way into every runway, we knew they were here to stay.
Combat boots are punk rock in its essence, the rebel boot to wear when you want to make a statement. The now infamous Prada combat boot with zip pockets gave us proof of that. And we couldn’t be more excited!
You don’t actually need to be part of a rock band or a modern day superstar to wear this unique style of boots. Every single celebrity and influencer has been seen wearing these and the outfits can be endless. They look great with punk rock clothing or even a cute white dress. So don’t despair, take a look at our selection of the best of the best, and get inspired!
