Dr. Martens shoes owe their name to their inventor Dr. Klaus Martens who wanted to create a comfortable working shoe in 1945. Even though materials were limited, he managed to develop the first models that same year. After a time of very uncomfortable safety boots, people were longing for comfortable footwear so the shoes were a success and demand increased. In 1952 the shoe was so popular that the first factory opened in Munich. In the 50s, the shoe was sold in 200 different editions.They have continued to grow in popularity ever since. The British loved the shoes and bought the production license of the soft soles, but they did not change the design, and the yellow seams of Dr. Martens shoes are still a well known trademark today. Though soldiers, mailmen and policemen were the initial target group for the shoe, they are now enjoyed by all. The first post war model has evolved into a truly fashionable, world-famous shoe!
