With its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole, and heel-loop, it was a boot for workers, initially worn by postmen and policemen; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to its competitors at the time.
Throughout Dr. Martens history, the brand has been adopted and subverted by diverse individuals, musicians, and youth cultures — the people who stand out from the crowd.
The simple silhouette allows people to customize each pair; whilst on a utilitarian level, their famous durability and comfort make them ideal footwear for the world of gigs and street fashion. On an emotional level, they are a flag of attitude and empowerment. The Northamptonshire factory where it all began still exists to this day, in the village of Wollaston, England. A specific range of ‘Made In England’ products are manufactured here by a small, close-knit team of people schooled in traditional shoe-making and the unique process that makes Dr. Martens like no other shoe on earth.
The store offers a wide array of men’s, women’s, and kids’ styles, from the classics to the latest trends. Dr. Martens is located in the North District, next to Aveda.
