In recent years, several colourful, larger than life, and somewhat mythical phenomenons have become a huge part of pop culture. Rainbows, unicorns, mermaids – all of these things can be found all over social media, home decor, and even fashion.
Now, it could be that society has become so conflicted as a result of the political climate that millennials are subconsciously relying upon their inner child to once again find some joy in this world.
Or it could be that mermaids are cool as f*** – I don’t know. What I do know is that people love people that are half people and half fish.
From iridescent leggings to scaley crop tops, mermaid wannabes can metaphorically swim through their local towns looking the part. And the final touch to their fishy looks just has to be these iridescent scaled Doc Martens.
Available in a dusty pink, light pink and green-blue, these boots are also detailed with tiny scales, fit for any beautiful mermaid or merman out there.
The products’ official description on the Doc Martens website reads:
“Live at full volume. Our Iridescent collection is made from two-tone iridescent scales that demand attention with every step.
Here the 1460 boot silhouette is enhanced with flecked laces and brushed silver eyelets, while Docs DNA is cemented with a yellow welt stitch and AirWair heel loop.
Rock them at festivals, gigs, parties — and wherever you damn well want.”
And the boots also come in a range of different styles, so you can suit your footwear to your particular taste, or maybe even collect the whole set?

To the six-ringed Molly boot:
“And the Molly boot is loudest of all. Built on our towering Quad Retro platform, the stacked boot is elevated even higher with flecked laces and brushed silver eyelets, while Docs DNA is cemented with a yellow welt stitch and AirWair heel loop.”
To the summer-appropriate Voss style:
“You can spot Docs Iridescent a mile off. The iridescent scales have a kaleidoscopic, out-of-this-world quality — perfect for parties, festivals and anyone who likes to make a scene.
This statement pouch follows in the footsteps of the shoe collection and comes with a matching detachable strap and magnetic clasp fastenings.”
And the popular low-cut Holly boot:
Whichever boot you decide to decide to go for, you can be sure that your newfound scales will gleam beautifully in the sun, and everyone will respect you for the majestic mermaid you are!
