Gigi Hadid’s Black Combat Boots Are A Street-Style Favorite — Here's Why
Although fans are usually the ones taking style tips, celebrities aren't afraid to follow each other's lead within the fashion realm. Kaia Gerber has made her love for chunky soles clear, but Gigi Hadid's black combat boots prove she's not the only street-style star jumping in on the trend. It makes sense why celebrities are flocking to Dr. Martens: They add a touch of edge to even the sweetest outfits, creating dynamic contrast in an easily achievable way.
Hadid was photographed in Manhattan on Weds. in a layered look aimed to keep out New York City's frigid, winter temperatures. The model looked simultaneously carefree and composed in a pair of black joggers, a white crewneck, a longline wool coat, and a neutral-colored blanket scarf. No comfortable, cold-weather look is complete without a pair of chunky boots and Hadid's Dr. Martens are a total classic. While the brand offers an assortment of designs, the Victoria's Secret model settled on the most traditional style: the '1460' Boot in black.
She stayed casual by pulling her long hair into a ponytail that sat at the crown of her head and protected her eyes in a pair of reflective, white-rimmed sunglasses. Since she usually carries super-high-end bags that cost well over $1,000, her affordable tote comes as a bit of a surprise (the black and gold version of her monogrammed, leather bowler bag by Mon Purse is currently on sale for under $200).
Marked at $140, Hadid's Dr. Marten combat boots are another affordable component of her look. Her relaxed take on off-duty style may be refreshingly easy to recreate, but the 23-year-old isn't the only notable name to wear the chunky shoes. Besides the aforementioned Gerber, models like Candance Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Hailey Baldwin, and Hadid's younger sister, Bella, have all been known to sport the style.
If you're not sold quite yet, the endless styling possibilities might just sway you. Pull a Hadid and pair them with your coziest sweatpants, a menswear-inspired hoodie, and a wool trench. As the weather warms up, try wearing your Docs with a floral mini dress, an oversized denim jacket, and a pair of cat-eye sunglasses.
