When it comes to cold weather shoes, Dr Martens are one of the absolute go-tos for many of us thanks to their hard-wearing leather uppers and chunky rubber soles that help keep our feet warm and dry, even in the most torrential of downpours.
However, as much as we love our Doc Martens, it’s no secret that they can take some breaking in to make them comfortable enough to wear all day long.
Thankfully, Marks and Spencer’s shoppers have found the perfect alternative that not only save you more than £100, but are also comfortable from the get go, with no wearing in necessary.
The Leather Lace Up Ankle Boots, £69 here, are definitely giving us some serious Dr Marten vibes with their chunky sole and contrast stitching details, and happy shoppers seem to agree with us, with one review reading: “Dr Martens dupe. Great boots. Went down a size. Easy to order and collect.”
Although they have the lace up style of Dr Martens, the Leather Lace Up Ankle Boots, £69 here, also have a handy side zip that means you can easily slip them on and off without having to faff around with tying and untying your laces.
The boots are made from real leather that was responsibly sourced via the Leather Working Group, and have been designed with M&S’ foot supporting Insolia Flex technology, which helps ensure your foot is always placed correctly within your shoes for a more comfortable, natural movement. There’s even antibacterial padding inside, which helps keep them fresh, no matter how long you wear them for.
Shoppers have been raving about how comfortable the boots are, with one review saying: “Really comfortable, I do over 10,000 steps a day for work, and these boots are so good. I wore them brand new, there was no need to do a ‘breaking into’ new shoes ritual to avoid blisters etc. Happy to buy these boots in various colours if they decide to make it.”
A second happy shopper wrote: “The reviews are correct. Soft, comfy & look great but go a size down,” whilst a third said: “Bought the cream colour, more summery! As others have said, comfortable from the word go and best to order half a size down. I have been wearing mainly with dresses. Several people have asked where I got them and amazed at the price.”
The Leather Lace Up Ankle Boots, £69 here, are available in sizes 3-8 with half sizes available (although several sizes are currently out of stock on the M&S website due to the boots’ popularity) and you even have a choice of colours, with both an autumn-ready black and a slightly more summery cream shade to pick from, although both hues have currently sold out in multiple sizes.
If you’ve missed out on your size in the M&S version, Next’s Warm Lined Lace-Up Boots, £29-£36 here, have a very similar look, and even have a cosy borg lining that will help keep your feet extra warm and dry during the upcoming colder months.
