Pick Of The Week: Dr Martens Bentley Brogue Boots

There are brands that fade into obscurity because we have moved on from them and found other interests. Others just become dormant because they lose that mass appeal they had before. Such is the case with Dr Martens. This brand was huge in the mid 90s. If you didn't have a pair of Docs then you weren't one of the cool kids. I was incredibly, therefore, when I was trawling the Country Attire site and I came across these leather wingtip boots by Dr Martens. This is a fresh, modern and interesting take on modern boot designs, and Dr Martens has kept true to their style and look. The white welt stitching, the rubber sole and the pattern of the sole are all features of the brand that go all the way back to the 90s. 

These particular boots are the Bentley Brogue Boot in black, and navy, charro and green. Of the two my favourite is the black one. The navy one looks slightly plasticky and frail, even though it is the signature Dr Martens design, with a Goodyear welted sole and AirWair technology which provides durability and ensures a comfortable fit. The boots also feature decorative perforations and wingtip detailing, a 7 eyelet design and a smooth leather finish.
