While I have nothing but admiration for those who wear combat boots year-round, the shoes are a fall-winter exclusive in my books. Combat boots, especially those from Dr. Martens, are as important to my cold weather wardrobe as any jacket or pair of gloves.

And, when I look at some of Hollywood’s favorite fashion girls, I know I’m not the only one championing the brand’s chunky leather shoes. From Heidi Klum to Olivia Rodrigo, celebrities of all ages and aesthetics seem to own a pair of Docs.

While any style from Doc Martens will add an edge to your wardrobe, the brand’s Sinclair ankle boots are what I’m eyeing this fall. Beloved by Heidi Klum and Selena Gomez, read on to find out why Nordstrom shoppers give the rugged ankle boots their five-star seal of approval.

The details

Priced at $280 CAD/$200 USD, Dr. Martens’ cult-favorite Sinclair boots (shop here in Canada, here in the US) are one of the brand’s best-selling styles. The pebbled leather ankle boots can be worn both laced and zipped up and feature a two inch heel and 1.5 inch platform, giving everyone the illusion of model legs.

Whether styled with the classic military feel of Dr. Martens or the rainbow-hued pieces of Heidi Klum, rugged ankle boots are a must-have for the colder months.

“A beautiful version of the classic Docs”

With an average rating of 4.5 stars, Nordstrom shoppers say Dr. Martens work boots are “comfortable right out of the box,” unlike some of the brand’s other styles.

“They’re a nice take on the classic Docs,” raves one buyer. “They’re comfortable and don’t even have to be worn because the leather is so soft.”

In addition, “the zippers are removable, [so] you really get two very different styles,” another reviewer wrote.

The sturdy ankle boots are available in sizes 5 to 11 and can be found in white and black leather.

“They go with everything and I love how you can remove the zipper for two different looks,” says another reviewer.

However, some Nordstrom shoppers note that Sinclair boots run large and recommend ordering a size down, as the brand does not offer half sizes.

“I’m going to have to wear thick socks or double socks and put on an extra insole,” one shopper wrote of Dr. Martens’ sizing.


As far as fall boots go, the model-approved Dr. Martens Sinclair ankle boots are a twist on a classic combat boot style — but shoppers advise running big. To shop more of the brand’s celebrity-approved boots for fall, check out our picks below.
