Why you’re going to want Dr. Martens Wild Hearts boots

Available in two classic Docs silhouettes, this sweet new design is perfect for Valentine's Day.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, footwear favourite Dr. Martens has now revealed two new shoe designs guaranteed to get you in the romantic spirit.

Titled "Wild Hearts," the style takes on both the iconic 1460 boots and the 1461 low shoes and decks them both out in a black leather upper. Contrasting hand-drawn black and white love hearts dominate the designs, giving them a funky cheetah-like aesthetic.

Each pair is then finished off with the classic Dr. Martens yellow welt stitching, AirWair heel loop and gunmetal eyelets.

Both shoe styles are now up for grabs on the US Dr. Martens site, so we've got our fingers crossed that they'll be available on the Australian site soon. The 1460 Pascal Boots are currently retailing for US$160, while the 1461 Oxfords are going for US$130, which is fairly standard for each silhouette.

If you're looking to deck out your mini-me too, a rainbow coloured heart edition of the 1460 boots is also available for sale on the US site. The design comes in youth, junior and toddler sizing and ranges in prices from US$60-US$85.

In other fashion news, Nike is also preparing for Valentine's Day with an entire shoe collection dedicated to the day of love. The pack includes new styles of the Air Force 1, Air Max 98, Blazer Low and Zoom 2K models. The designs will begin to drop onto the Nike site from 8 February.

If you're not feeling the love this year, Nike has also revealed a Broken Heart-themed pair of Air Force 1 Sage Lows. The kicks feature a blood red Nike Swoosh cracked in half, complete with an engraved heart locket around the laces.

The sneakers have already sold out on the US Nike site, though we're holding out for a restock.
