With a history of self-expression and rebellious individuality, Dr. Martens deserve a place in everyone’s shoe collection. The 1960s, the decade in which the Dr. Martens boot was born, saw an unprecedented wave of change, new ideas, cultural upheaval and eventually social revolution. This radical atmosphere also witnessed extravagant and often exotic fashion, an odd backdrop for the birth of such a functional work-boot but then Dr. Martens has always kicked against the norm. Showcase your rebellious spirit with a classic counterculture icon! Dr. Martens has a long history of taking risks and playing by their own rules, a lifestyle we can really get behind. In the era of the global village and social media, every aspect of youth culture and subcultural style has changed. Yet diverse individuals, fans and subcultures still champion Dr. Martens, attracted by its unique alternative appeal and authenticity in a world of homogeny. On a stylistic level, Dr. Martens’ simple silhouettes allows their wearers to adopt the boots and shoes as part of their own individual and very distinctive style; on a practical level, their famous durability and comfort make them ideal for the unforgiving world of gigs and street fashion; and then finally on an emotional level, they are a badge of attitude and empowerment. So join us in celebrating the fringes of society, the outcasts, and, of course, people who just appreciate a quality boot with a timeless style.
