Step Into Spring With The Dr Martens Slime Floral Collection!
Blending elements of pastel goth and psychobilly, the Slime Floral Collection is jam packed with statement prints and bold designs.
Whether you like the look of the gorgeously green Slime Floral Paint Slick boots that give the illusion of trampling through a flowery field, or you prefer the blue and violet palette of the Slime Floral Purple Paint Slick Docs that look like they should smell of bluebells, this collection is sure to leave Doc fans drooling!
Not only does the brand new Slime Floral range include the classic Pascal style boots that we have all come to love from this iconic brand, but they also stock the Green Paint Slick print in the style of the 1460 lace up shoe and the Purple Paint Slick in the style of the Polley buckle shoe; meaning you can sport this new psychobilly style in whatever way suits you!
Perfect for anyone who likes to let their feet do the talking, this new range really pushes the boundaries of Dr Marten’s alternative footwear by incorporating punk and feminine florals all in one kick-ass print! Not for the faint of heart, these colourful creations are designed to make a statement and are best styled with some black skinnies and your favourite tee, however if you want to embrace your inner flower-girl this summer, why not couple with an airy-fairy floral dress and flower crown for a festival-chic ensemble that will have all eyes on you?
If you thought that these Dr Martens were all about that indie style over substance then you couldn’t be more wrong! These Slime Floral boots and shoes are made with the same great care as every other pair of Docs since the company’s creation back in 1947 and carry with them the reputation for quality, comfort and durability that the brand pride themselves on.
The Slime Floral Pascal Boots are packed with nifty little features that make the punky print even more appealing, including:
- 8 Eyelet Lace Up Fastening
- Heel Pull Tab
- Goodyear-Welted (The sole and upper is heat sealed and sewn together rather than simply glued
- Slip-resistant Soles
- High Quality Leather
So if you’re after a pair of boots that you can rely on to keep your feet safe and dry time and time again, as well as boasting a rocking print, these boots are some serious contenders for your closet space!
Rock Out With Your Docs Out!
A true favourite among the free-thinkers and alternative subcultures, this brand’s air-cushioned sole was first designed by German inventor, Dr Klaus Maertens to provide comfort for his broken foot (they’re that comfy!). The Dr Marten’s boot was later manufactured by R Griggs and Co and was given its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heel loop. Originally these boots were worn by postmen and policemen because they were much more comfortable, durable and lightweight than other boots on the market! Soon after the Dr Marten’s brand gained its loyal following of fans and this undeniably awesome brand has developed their identity as one of the leading alternative footwear brands that cater to anyone with their own individual style! The brand itself states on it’s website:
“Dr. Martens’ appeal to people who have their own individual style but share a united spirit – authentic characters who stand for something. People who possess a proud sense of self- expression. People who are different.”
It is this spirit of self expression and DILLIGAF attitude that makes them so appealing and with styles like this new Slime collection, it’s really not hard to see why…
Dr Martens have become so popular now that we all know someone who has a pair, but with so many ranges and styles to choose from, even celebrities like Hayley Williams are rocking those Docs!
