Dr. Martens have been worn by workers, for whom they were designed, but also by rebels, non-conformists and free thinking individuals of all types for over five decades. A design classic, the boots were first adopted by skinheads and then by a succession of other sub-cultures as an icon of personal self-expression and individuality.
At the heart of Dr. Martens is the Airwair sole – featured on the first pair of boots to roll off our production line on the 1st April 1960 and still used today. A family owned company, the shoes are still made in their original factory in Wollaston, Northamptonshire, England.
* Our Dr. Martens collection follows US sizing. (i.e. our size 8 = size EU 39).
