If your style has been feeling less than exciting lately, it may be time to look back to your punk phase for inspiration, because there, you will find the shoe that can make anyone look like a badass. We’re talking about Dr. Martens, the chunky combat boots that are just as popular today as they were in the 90s — especially for celebrities. Kristen Stewart loves the brand so much that she constantly wears Doc Martens  on the red carpet, and even wore the loafers to a Chanel show (and made a classic tweed jacket look sexy). Add that to the list of outfit combinations we never thought we’d love. Other famous fans of the classic shoes include the Hadid sisters and Emma Watson — so basically, anyone whose wardrobe we’d like a piece of.

Now, the shoes have always been on the pricier side (after all, they’re made with 100 percent leather), but right now, you can shop them for as low as $90 thanks to Nordstrom Rack’s major Dr. Martens sale. In the sale, you’ll find K Stew’s black loafers for $50 off, the classic chunky boots for $90, and some heeled options for nearly 40 percent off.

If you observe how celebrities have styled the shoes, you’ll see that they can truly be worn with anything. Gigi Hadid has worn herDoc Martens with casual sweatpants and bell bottoms, Bella Hadid has paired hers with sexy dresses, and Watson has fashioned hers for travel. No matter the occasion, they always look cool.

While the brand’s black shoes are perhaps its best known style, there are some more colorful options included in Nordstrom Rack’s markdowns, too. The Magdelena Boot comes in cherry red that’s subtle enough to remain work-appropriate, but sultry nonetheless. For something more wild, there’s also the leopard print chelsea boot that has a flatter platform (ideal if your  feet are prone to aching) than many other variations. And for those who don’t mind a little shine, there are shimmering gold and metallic silver boots available for $50 off each.

Finding a pair of Dr. Martens for under $150 — better yet, under $100 — usually only happens at thrift stores, but these styles are all going for incredible price points. However, Nordstrom Rack sales seem to sell out faster than new iPhone launches (and this one only lasts through tomorrow), so a word of advice: If you see a pair you love in your size, make like the Hadids and put those shoes in your cart ASAP.
