Selena Gomez's Favorite Dr. Martens Shoes 

Dr Martens shoes are well-known for their tough aesthetic and durability. They also happen to look good.  

Despite the brand's modest beginnings in workwear, the notorious "Docs" combat boot has become a mainstay of contemporary streetwear, 

paired with everything from blue jeans to (costume) wedding dresses by celebrities like Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner. 

However, how did this practical aesthetic ascend the Hollywood hierarchy?According to Vice President of Product Kristin Jones, 

Dr. Martens' first pair of shoes were made in April 1960, as PEOPLE reports. Although the boots were originally intended for factory workers, 

Jones explains that they quickly gained popularity among "punks, musicians, and anyone who stood for self-expression." 

With its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole, and heel-loop, it was a boot for workers, 

initially worn by postmen and policemen; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to its competitors at the time," Jones says.
