HEADLINERS: AS WORN BY THE EXPERTS


SPOTLIGHT ON THE DM’S TEAM


Endless ways to wear. A whole lot of ways to inspire. And our staff know a thing or two about both. We caught up with some of the team to talk subverting fashion rules, breaking in tips and ways to wear Docs in the summer.


 
 
 

THE 1460 BOOT


BEKKI
VISUAL MERCHANDISING


YOU’VE GOT ROOM TO PACK ONE PAIR OF 1460S AND 3 OUTFITS. WHERE ARE YOU GOING AND WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?

I’m usually going to a music or fashion event – followed by an after-party. So I always rely on my classic black 1460s and a staple black blazer. Professional by day and rock glam by night when I take it off. I also swear by carrying at least 3 pairs of different coloured laces – my favourite way to lace is ‘bow tie lace’.


ADVICE FOR SIGNATURE STYLE?

Start with feet first. If you’re confident in your footwear – nothing can knock you down. You can customise with lacing, writing, boot charms – so not only will your footwear be unique to you, so will what you style them with.


BEST BREAKING IN TIP?

Pre-drinks and a night at a gig – works every time. But don’t forget the Double Docs socks! I’ll usually buy a brand-new pair for my first day/night breaking in. All the tried and tested techniques are on our How to Break In page – so don’t just take my word for it.

Tip: Before I head out, I coat both the inside and the outside in Wonder Balsam. Failure to prepare is preparing to fail!

CAMDEN STORE


ANY ‘STYLE RULES’ YOU LIKE TO BREAK?

Gendered labels. Wear whatever you want. Style what you want. I love to incorporate both masculine and feminine touches into my outfits.


YOU'VE WORE 1460S SINCE YOU WERE 17 – WHAT KEEPS YOU COMING BACK?

Because they are undeniably classic. They give you that perfect blend of vintage and punk. Who doesn’t want that?


TIPS FOR CREATING A SIGNATURE LOOK?

Focus on the details. The beauty lies within the small details. As I’m a drag queen – I make a lot of my own clothes – and watch a lot of fashion shows from different eras, which filters into my style. Tip: always lay tomorrow’s outfits out before bed.


 
 
 

THE 1461 SHOE

JOSHUA

TOP 3 OUTFITS TO PAIR WITH 1461s?

Bright boilersuits. Baggy jeans and a t-shirt. Leather blazer and flares.


HOW DOES WEARING YOUR DM’S MAKE YOU FEEL?

Strong. And ready for whatever life throws at me.


BEST GIG OF THE SUMMER?

Lady Gaga was insane and the best night ever. She's absolutely mind-blowing. And Danny L Harle too – he's a genius. I'm seeing Rosalia in a few months and I'm buzzing about it already!

ANNA
LIVERPOOL STORE


WHY ARE 1461s YOUR SUMMER GO-TO?

1461s go with anything. Skirts, dresses, shorts, pants. So comfortable (after you’ve broken them in) and easy to slip on and off.


ADVICE FOR SIGNATURE STYLE?

Experiment! Pinterest is my favourite place to find outfit inspiration. Don't just follow popular trends – find which colours and patterns are your favourites to wear and suit you most.


DOES YOUR MOOD EVER INFLUENCE WHICH PAIR OF DOCS YOU WEAR?

Definitely! If I’m feeling gloomy and want to dress edgier – I go straight for the Jadon Max. When I’m in a sunnier mood - I’ll wear my 1461 Quads. And If I’m just dressed casually, I always go for my Jadons.

THE ADRIAN LOAFER


 

DAVID
LONDON CARNABY ST. STORE


BEST BREAKING IN TIP?

Wonder Balsam, Double Docs socks, a hope and a prayer.


WHAT DO YOU WEAR WHEN YOU WANT TO FEEL CONFIDENT?

I usually go for a statement piece – like a bold colour/print or a wide-leg trouser. One of my go-to pieces is a multicoloured stripe knit, either with black trousers or shorts depending on the weather. Pairing with darker trousers really makes the colours stand out. For accessories, I put on a gold chain, colourful sunglasses, a cute hat and of course – my DM's to finish it all off.


HOW DOES WEARING YOUR DM’S MAKE YOU FEEL?

Like I can express myself. And stamp all over societal norms.

INDIA
BRISTOL STORE


WHAT DOES YOUR OUTFIT SAY ABOUT YOU?

Good at finding bargains. My outfit was £12 and it says “I’m a bad bitch you can’t kill me!”


WHAT MAKES LOAFERS A GO-TO STYLE IN SUMMER?

I love wearing loafers in the summer. They’re easy to slip on and off, lightweight and breathable – and as they’re a classic design you can wear with almost everything! Wearing Adrians serves boss vibes. I always feel fancy and powerful when I have mine on.


BEST BREAKING IN TIP?

Thick socks. Push through any pain and get it over with.


THE 2976 CHELSEA BOOT


 

MASON
BATH STORE


EXCITED FOR SUMMER?

Yes! More colour and more confidence. And wearing my DM’s wherever I can!


WHERE WILL YOUR 2976 CHELSEA BOOTS TAKE YOU THIS SUMMER?

Everywhere – they're ideal when I don’t want to spend time lacing up, or if I’m rushing to meet friends. And they’re a smarter style for me – so I’ll be wearing them for occasions like garden parties, weddings and days out shopping.


ANY ‘STYLE RULES’ YOU LIKE TO BREAK?

A sweater vest or V-neck jumper with nothing underneath. Especially in the summer.

INDIA


ADVICE FOR SIGNATURE STYLE?

Don’t listen to your parents! Your style is sick the way it is. Dress for yourself.


WHAT MAKES CHELSEA BOOTS A GO-TO STYLE, NO MATTER THE TIME OF YEAR?

Chelsea boots are so versatile – they’re a go-to no matter what time of year it is. You can wear them with dresses, jeans, shorts - the lot. I've even seen people wear them as wedding shoes. And they're easy to slip on if you're in a hurry!


HOW DOES WEARING YOUR DM’S MAKE YOU FEEL?

Average-height. Badass. And like I could fight men.


 
 
 

THE JADON PLATFORM BOOT

LOLA
BELFAST STORE


ADVICE FOR SIGNATURE STYLE?

Be yourself and dress for yourself! Not everyone else.


WHAT MAKES YOUR JADONS A SUMMER GO-TO?


I could wear them with anything – from cute girly outfits on hot summer days to more grungy outfits when it gets cooler on an evening. You can also wear them to dress up outfits that need that extra edge – and dress down more ‘formal’ outfits to give them a casual look.


TOP OUTFITS TO PAIR WITH DOCS?


Shorts and a vest with an overshirt. Another one of my go-to looks is a dress, funky fishnet tights, a belt and an oversized leather blazer.

E_S2_EVG_STYLE_ICONS_SUMMER_JADON_F_DESKTOP?w=978&fmt=auto&alt=default

MASON


ONE PAIR OF JADONS, THREE OUTFITS?

Oversized shorts, a belt and a tucked-in graphic tee on hot days in the sun. Tip: a platform Quad sole with shorts makes your legs look longer.

Combat trousers tucked into Jadons with a loose-knit vest for nights out. The zip makes them super easy to get off after a few! Jadons give an outfit a more refined vibe.

Jadons with a boiler suit is always a lazier, but still edgy choice for me. I roll the leg slightly to show the eyelets off.


WHAT DO YOU WANT THIS LOOK TO SAY ABOUT YOU?

One main thing – I love green! It’s my favourite colour. And so nice when paired with browns. I love older cuts of clothing like sweater vests and straight-leg trousers, so this outfit really encapsulates my comfort zone and where I feel most at home in my dress sense. Plus with a Quad sole, my confidence always gets a little boost too.
