[Pictured: Dr. Martens Wasp Weston Boot available for $130.00.]
While the original Dr. Martens boot has some seriously awesome history behind it, I can see how it would be a little too punk rock for a lot of people including myself. With that being said, I really like their new Weston Boot. Part of their Wasp collection (tongue in cheek much?), the Weston boot is the British brand's foray into "outdoor Americana styling". The boot brings together a lot of Dr. Martens' signature elements and said Americana elements to create an interesting combination. I'm always on the lookout for foreign takes on our country's staples and this is one of the best I've seen outside of the Japanese brands who have been doing it real well for a while. The yellow welt trim is particularly striking and I really appreciate the abbreviated moc toe. Overall, The Weston is a very stylish boot tailored made for gallivanting around the city (slim sole included) and for under $150.00 it's a bargain. Along with the Timberland Abington collection, these are currently the best non-Red Wing, non-Thorogood boots on my radar.
