Kristen Stewart's New Favorite Shoe Is A Perfect Metaphor For Twilight Vampires

If you've got any tween Twi-hards on your shopping list for the holidays, buy them something that's a little more constructive than Pattinson Panties. The Cut has been tracking Kristen Stewart's footwear game, and she's been wearing an appropriately tomboy-gone-grunge Dr. Martens shoe. However, these aren't your average shit-kickers: They're actually sneakers that are cut in the same shape as Dr. Marten's signature boot shape, but lack the bulk, the weight (and that intense, soul-testing breaking-in process too, we suspect) of original Docs. All the style without the teeth, shall we say? An appropriate metaphor for the Stephanie Meyer-breed of vampire? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
The Leyton boots retail for $80 in a very on-trend oxblood shade, and are already available online. And, if pressed, we'll admit to liking them a whole lot. Kid cousins — you might have to settle for hand-me-downs in this case!
