The first pair of Dr. Martens shoes rolled off the production line on 1 April 1960. With its yellow stitching, grooved insole and heel tab - all of which are trademarks - this shoe was aimed at workers, postmen and policemen, as it was so comfortable, hard-wearing and light compared to the competition at the time. Throughout the history of Dr. Martens, the brand has been adopted and transformed by countless rebellious personalities, countercultures and tribes. So many individuals who stand out from the crowd and give free rein to their freedom of expression, always accompanied by a pair of Dr. Martens. The sleek silhouette of Dr. Martens allows everyone to personalise their pair.
Their comfort and durability make them the ultimate allies for the concert and urban fashion worlds. Emotionally speaking, Dr. Martens represent the emblem of a certain attitude and emancipation. The factory in Wollaston, Northampton, where it all began, still exists today. The "Made In England" range of products are manufactured by a highly skilled workforce, which continues the unique Dr. Martens manufacturing process that has been in place for 6 decades.
