No one would have ever dreamed that the practical safety shoes from Dr. Martens would have ever risen to become the cult shoes of the wave and cult scene. A lot has changed, however, since the German inventor Dr. Klaus Maertens, designed a rugged prototype pair of work shoes with a rubber sole from army remnants shortly after World War II. In 1959, a British company bought the license to the label and changed the look to the now famous style with distinctive stitching and rugged leather covering. The once safety shoes popular among factory workers, postal workers, and police in the 60s was quickly discovered in the booming, English music scene in the late 70s. The classic "Docs" produced by Dr. Martens are still very successful, however, today the English brand offers many more new designs, ensuring that the spirit of the brand will carry on.

Whoever has Doc Martens, will know what I mean. Once Docs- always Docs. Great appearance and leather.

Typical Doc Martens, good quality, you have to wear them in but otherwise they fit perfectly.

big black boots
I've had these shoes for a week and I think they still need to be worn in some more! I got a small blister, but that may be because the shoes come up much too big! I bought them in my usual size and there is still loads of room for warm socks in the winter! :)

There are some things, screaming with authenticity, that can be called cult. There are loads of them, amongst them this boot. The trademark stands for social classes, scenes, generations, settings and beliefs... and men and women can wear them how they want. But these boots are not only robust (whether worn in industry, in the gutter, at a festival or in a club) and are also unbelievably comfortable! They look bulky and massive, but feel feather-like on and are a comfortable fit.The robust leather means that it takes a while to wear them in - as with any leather shoe. Personally, I lean towards the model made of nappa leather. But on the whole, there is no alternative to a real pair of Docs!
