Dr. Martens’ black leather and yellow stitching has become instantly recognizable worldwide.  Initially worn by postmen and factory workers, Dr. Martens’ first few years of existence was very much that of a £2 work-wear boot, selling solid quantities to Britain’s working classes. Then something incredible started to happen.

Without any warning or intent, Dr. Martens were suddenly picked up by early multi-cultural, ska-loving skinheads – who proudly championed British working class style. Shortly after, Pete Townshend of The Who became the first high profile individual to wear them as a symbol of his own working class pride and rebellious attitude.

That attitude has stuck to Dr. Martens ever since. From work-class hero, to punk-icon to fashion-forward item – it’s safe to say that Dr. Martens is here to stay as one of the most iconic footwear brands in its league. Championed by every youth culture movement out there.
