Doc Martens Dupes
Steve Madden Bettyy Boot
These are some of the cutest boots I’ve ever seen by Steve Madden! The Bettyy boot takes on a punk, grunge twist so the classic combat boots.
These lace-up boots come in two different colors, black and white. They are also made with vegan leather and have a chunky platform! These are perfect for any of my shorter peeps out there (or taller, who cares!)
Dirty Laundry Mazzy Boot
These Mazzy combat boots are very similar to the Doc Marten Leona’s but at a way more affordable price.
These boots are offered in both black and white. They have a chunky block heel and lace-up design. If you’re looking for a classic combat boot comparable to Doc Martens at a very affordable price, then these are for you.
Franco Sarto Jensine Combat Boot
If you’re looking for a maroon Doc Marten dupe then these are for you!
This boot has a thick platform for added height and is made of leather. It also comes in three different colors, maroon, black and green! They’re also a fraction of the price of Doc Martens.
Madden Girl Kurrt Combat Boot
If you like Doc Marten Jadon’s, then these are a great dupe. This Kurrt boot has a side zip closure and is made of faux leather.
This boot also has a small platform with white stitching, similar to how Doc Marten has their signature yellow stitching. Many people rave about how comfortable these boots are which is sometimes hard to find when it comes to combat boots (if you own Doc Martens, you know they take a minute to break in).
Indigo Rd. Wilder Combat Boot
If you’re looking for a white Doc Marten dupe then these combat boots are for you! I love the design of these, especially the elastic gore which helps add extra stretch to get your foot into the shoe without lacing and unlacing every time.
These boots have a thick platform and heel for added height. Plus, you can’t beat this price!
How Much Do Doc Martens Cost?
Aren’t those dupes so cute? I hope you find a pair you like. But if you’re still debating between buying Doc Martens or Doc Marten dupes, let’s talk about a few things starting with cost.
Doc Martens definitely isn’t the most expensive shoe brand ever but they do cost a pretty penny. The brand has a bunch of different styles (more than just boots) so their price range is fairly wide.
Now, if you’re looking for a pair of Doc Martens and you don’t want to purchase one of the dupes I mentioned above, I highly recommend you check out this website. This is where I purchased my Doc Martens. They typically have a 25% discount and the shipping is super fast. If they don’t have a discount, I recommend waiting a few days and checking again.
When ordering, make sure you order the correct size (I accidentally ordered men’s the first time). But even if you do need to exchange for any reason, the exchange process was so easy. I remember receiving my replacement pair within 2-3 days of requesting an exchange.
Are Doc Martens Worth It?
In my opinion, I do find Doc Martens to be worth it. Does that mean you should invest in them if you’re unable to? Not at all. Spend your money wisely because you know your budget better than anyone. But I do believe they are a good investment and if you take proper care of them, they will absolutely last you many years.
However, I think this is also the case for just about any pair of boots. Take proper care of them and you’ll be a-okay for years to come. Especially if you’re in a colder climate like me, you likely won’t be wearing your boots all year round so they can have a little break during the warmer weather if need be.
Now, if you are still interested in purchasing Doc Martens you may notice a lot of their popular products are out of stock on their website. If you’re coming across this problem, check all of these other websites that carry Doc Marten.

My Favorite Doc Martens Style
If you’re willing to invest in Doc Martens, I highly recommend the Leona style. They’re my absolute favorite and are the boots that converted me to a Doc Martens lover.
The great thing about Doc Martens is that they are sure to last. I’ve had my Leona’s for a while now and they’re in wonderful shape. However, once they do run their course I will absolutely invest in another pair.
Let’s Wrap It Up
Whether you needed some convincing to invest in a pair of Doc Martens or whether you are simply looking for Doc Martens dupes, I hope this article was able to help you in one way or another.
