Truth be told, I have never worn a pair of combat boots. I’ve always thought about buying them, but I’ve never come close to going through with it. However, our writer Ashley Reese wears combat boots (she must have at least 10 pairs of Dr. Martens) almost every day, and I’m always intrigued by her style.
