About Dr. Martens

Dr. Martens The first pair of Dr. Martens boots rolled off the production line in Northamptonshire, England on 1st April, 1960. With it's trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heel-loop, it was a boot worn by postmen, policemen and everyday workers; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to it's competitors at the time.

The boots and shoes were then adopted, customised and used across decade after decade as a tribal emblem by successive sub-cultures, each twisting and subverting the boots and shoes to meet their own individual identity. For many people their first pair of Dr. Martens is a memorable moment in time, an opening statement of rebellious self-expression and creativity.
