Dr. Martens are iconic not only for their footwear, but for the statement making history of the brand. Now a staple in shaping the British fashion landscape, Dr. Martens are a symbol of rebellion, attitude and the punk and grunge movements. The shoes began life as a practical and comfortable working boot, but have now become a world renowned fashion piece.
Affectionately known to many simply as 'Docs' or 'DMs', the shoes transcend generations and genders. Practical in quality, Dr. Martens classic boots are hard wearing enough to withstand heavy wear for years - the worn in look is a loveable Docs characteristic for many. Toughen up dresses with a pair of classic black Dr. Martens women's ankle boots and tights, or wear a floral printed pair to soften the effect. Dr. Martens ballet pumps are one of the more feminine Doc styles, yet still retain the classic rebellious flare of the brand. Throw back to the nineties with a grunge look by styling a pair with a light short cotton dress, worn over a short sleeved white t-shirt.
The Dr. Martens collection has diversified hugely since first invention of the original 1460, extending now to a variety of shoe styles as well as boots, and available in a range of shades alongside the classic blacks and original oxblood. For a twist on the classic smart men's look, try a pair of Dr Martens men's flat shoes with your suit. Their comfort makes them a great business shoe, whilst iconic design features such as the original yellow outer stitching and rounded toe often remain to retain the Doc Martens attitude.
