Dr. Martens

Founded in 1945 by Dr. Klaus Maertens, the 25 year-old soldier created his own uniquely cushioned sole to care for his broken foot. In the decades following, his brand debuted their first work boots, an immediate hit with the working class and those championing it. Their footwear soon represented far more than what was offered at face value, cementing its part in the rebellious subculture of 1970s Britain. First adopted by Britpop, then Glamrock, and then Grunge, their 1461 silhouette was an essential accessory for fans and musicians alike. Now, a combination of new designs and ongoing nostalgia have made Dr. Martens more popular than ever, showing how timeless their work truly is.
