While many stylish celebrities are embracing quirky shoe trends such as plastic heels or dad sneakers, there’s a crew of models who prefer the timeless appeal of the grungy Dr. Martens lace-up. The thick-sole’d shoe, which was a classic choice on the ’90s punk scene, has been repeatedly worn by Kendall Jenner in the past month and now, Gigi Hadid is putting her stamp on it, too, albeit with an unexpected twist.
Hitting the streets of New York City today, Hadid was spotted wearing the original black Dr. Martens combat boot. But instead of styling it with an obvious rock ’ n ’ roll getup, she slipped on her signature athleisure instead, giving the chunky footwear a fresh, modern feel. She paired the shoes with a white hoodie by Mandkhai and monogram-printed sweat pants by Burberry, which had a side racing stripe detail. Meanwhile, a navy baseball cap, cross-body buckle bag by Prada, and tiny, round sunglasses finished the look off with sleek polish. Now, the official saying is that three’s a trend, but when both Kendall and Gigi wear something? It means the trend is fast-tracked towards becoming a thing.
