Last August, independent and playful British brand Lazy Oaf, collaborated with iconic brand Dr Marten’s to create their “Jungle Boot”. This month, they’re back with a whole new style, and this time it comes in two different colour ways: Black or Blush Pink. Behold, the Flatform Buckle Boot.
Lazy Oaf is known for it’s cute, alternative aesthetic and features the same pink colour in a lot of their pieces. The boot itself is well made, just as you’d expect from Dr Martens, and they feature cute details that distinguish it from anything Dr Martens have released in the past. Made from Suede, the boots have a softer touch compared to the iconic leather Docs, but the thick flatform’s add toughness to them that make them more edgy and raw.
The overall design is very contrasting, featuring cute heart buckles and heart shaped cut outs at the back of the boot, but it’s the shape and structure of the boot that really contrasts with this. It brings together the brands edginess and femininity to truly create something unique and highly sought after.
The boot still features the same yellow stitch detailing on the double sole, which makes them instantly recognisable as Dr Marten’s, whilst the cutesy design makes them stand out as something very classic of Lazy Oaf to release. Instead of the usual laces that Dr Marten’s use, this features three buckles which add to the playfulness of the shoe. What’s great about the shoes is that whilst different colours, they still work together. The hearts at the back of the boots match up to the colour of the opposite boot, which suggests you could even wear these together for an even more edgy and unique look.
The boots can be found from the following stores, but be quick as they are selling out in minutes each time they become available!
