Doc Martens are similar to army boots and come in styles and designs fit for men and women. This type of shoe is a punk-ish, retro style and originate form England as Dr. Martens. These shoes can come in high tops or low tops, and have thick rubber soles and firm laces. I'm not too sure if they are very comfortable but they are stylish. For guys you can pair them with anything, such as rolled up pant cuffs and a blazer. For girls you can wear tights, skirts, dresses, jeans, etc! Go crazy and get a pair.
