Dr Martens – Dr Martens 1460 – Doc Martens – DM boots – punk footwear UK
As a brand, Dr Martens have achieved a level of fame, recognition and iconic design that few footwear labels can compete with. Becoming the punk footwear of choice in the 80’s and being worn by countless celebrities throughout the decades, Dr Martens are now known by many different short hands and nicknames such as Doc Martens and simply DM boots. Designed by Klaus Martens, who wanted extra support for his feet, Dr Martens each contain their patented AirWair technology, allowing for amazing support and comfort that is often replicated but never to the standard of the original. The name Dr Martens will instantly make most think of their world famous line of boots but this brand of footwear has a wide range of styles when it comes to long lasting, quality products:

Dr Martens even produce a range of boots entitled “Made in England”, which are direct replicas of these history-making boots. Over the years, these versatile boots have been a favourite of housewives, shift workers and punk rockers alike but Doc Martens always retain their unique style.
During the 80’s Dr Martens became increasingly popular as the punk movement made them the footwear of choice.
