It’s been boot season over in NYC for months now, but there’s one affordable pair that stands apart from the rest and, by the look of it, the model crowd couldn’t agree more. The boots we’re talking about are Dr. Martens Jadon 8 Eye Boots, a celebrity-adored spin on their classic combat boots that features a platform sole and higher rise on the ankle. The $170 boots have been dangerously close to selling out all season long, but luckily retailers like Shopbop and Nordstrom also stock them in white, burgundy, and black velvet on top of Candice’s classic black pair.
Swanepoel wore them to attend the Versace runway show in NYC and although you might be thinking that combat boots are out of place at a fashion show, her undeniably chic look says otherwise. Styled with an edgy black mini dress and a crossbody bag, her outfit completely reinvents the affordable boots as a rather elevated footwear choice.
