The Doctor is IN?

Whoa. Have Doc Martens gone fashion? The shoes most often seen on 80s punks (and the 00s punks who love them) and pimply junior-high kids everywhere now seem to be boasting a certain upmarket appeal, having expanded beyond their standard clodhopper boot. Don't believe me? Check it out:

Dana knee-high boot, $140.

Chloe slouchy boot, $130. Mmmmm, me likey.

Slate knee-high boot, $140.

Re-Boot tall boot, $153.95.

And my own personal pick: the Stephanie boot, featuring "butt seaming." Sexy!

Some of these boots are not quite there yet, but I think they're headed in the right direction, much like Dr. Scholl's, another formerly niche company that is now courting the fashion-forward. Not to worry, however: Doc Martens still produce some fantastically ugly shoes. To wit:

Springtime boot, $118.95.

Red velvet boot, $153.95.

And on and on, as you can imagine.

That Chloe boot is pretty hot. These would be great for every day wear, something Doc Marten's had cornered a market on before overdoing it on the tire tread soles.

Those pink ones, however, make me think of Pepto Bismol.

I saw some cute Doc Martens on another blog but convinced myself it was a dream. Now I believe it. I'm so in shock.
