Dr Martens | DM Boots

Whether you call them DR MARTENS or DM Boots we've got them right here.

Dr Martens was founded by a German Doctor named Klaus Martens during WW2 as a means to create comfortable footwear for injured military soldiers. Following the end of the war, many German soldiers would recover valuables from the abandoned stores of their towns and cities, Martens would salvage leather from a cobbler’s shop and use the materials to make himself a pair o air-cushioned soles.

After some initial success mostly throughout Germany Martens and Funck had resorted to salvaging materials from disused Luftwaffe airfields before their boots gained the attention of British manufacturers. This would spark the rise of the DM boots as a symbol of original style and identity throughout the subcultures of the UK.

The footwear and apparel that becomes the stylistic essentials of a subculture are best used when their intended use is subverted. See the militaria of the 1460 Boot, the Clarks Wallabee Moccasin and the Donkey Jacket. Made popular as a statement of rebellion and anti-establishment the original DM boot donned with its patented air cushioned sole and traditional yellow stitching became popular among the first wave of punks with the likes of Vivian Westwood wearing the shoe.

As well as being a feasible piece of workwear, the DM has stood the test of time because of its quality British design and innovation that supports originality. Recent collaborations have seen Doctor Martens team up with the likes of New Order and streetwear brand Stussy to create new reflections on classic collections.

The DM encapsulates British countercultural style and whether it’s the original 16 eyelet boot, the Church boot or a penny loafer, the 1460 boot acts as a signifying entry point into modern identities.
