31 Celebrities In Dr. Martens, From The Red Carpet To Pop-Punk Looks

Docs forever!

Originally Published: 

The revival of pop-punk fashion is upon us and when it comes to essential places to shop, one of the first brands that often come to mind is Dr. Martens, and rightfully so.

The English footwear brand has completely revolutionized the shoe game and now serves as a fashion staple for over a century. Known for its sturdy leather design and its signature yellow threading, the coveted style became a symbol for working-class and rebellious subgroups, and today, it not only reigns as a wardrobe must-have for many but it’s proven to be a pop culture-meets-fashion phenomenon, too.

Over the years, the coveted style has been worn by many celebrities in a number of ways — on the red carpet, during live performances, and in their everyday going-out looks. Avril Lavigne was often seen in the chunky boot during her self-titled album era, while Gwen Stefani rocked a pair on stage back in 2012. It has also been co-signed by the likes of Blackpink’s Rosé, who wore the brand’s oxford shoes a day before her 2021 Met Gala appearance, while Olivia Rodrigo is often sporting a platform Doc. Coming in an array of colorways and designs, even launching collabs with luxury designers, it seems that Dr. Martens will continue to be the go-to shoe that always makes a fashion statement.

Whether you’re looking to live out your pop-punk dreams or to simply dress with style, see how some of our favorite stars wore Dr. Martens over the years, including Willow Smith, Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa, and many more, ahead.
