Dr Martens Airwair USA
Although known widely for its combat boots, Dr. Martens has branched out over its 50 years of service, crafting a panoply of footwear and accessories for everyone from industrial workers to flip-flop-fancying femmes. Men can pick up a pair of Dave black canvas boots ($70), sleek and understated at two eyes high, while women might favor something from the Diva collection ($120 and up) in a range of styles and colors, fitted with high heels. Although sandals are not traditionally associated with the Doc's hard-bitten image, a variety of the open-toed duds are available for keeping clompers cool. A two-strap Adalia slide sandal ($45) with thick buckles and tartan plaid keeps female feet looking tough, while men's black grizzly sandals ($85) give sweltering toes a break without sacrificing durability or quality. Dr. Martens make a variety of accessories including hats, T-shirts, and shoe care kits.
