Ceremonious Gemini?

So I've been wanting these for awhile now, but had only seen them in red, purple and black.

I feel like the designer of this style might have drawn inspiration from the classic Doc Marten aesthetic; Styles like the classic "1460 8 Eye" Doc Marten boot or perhaps one of the newer styles such as the "Cashlin" (below) really make me think of this boot. If you compare the shape of the Doc Marten sole with the Opening Ceremony, they're the same, with the latter just a stretched version.

But isn't it so great that they added on the smallish wooden heel? I would be much more apt to buy the Opening Ceremony boot just because of it.

Do you see the similarities?
