Dr Martens have been seen on rebels, non-conformists and free-thinking individuals over the past five decades. They were first adopted by skinheads and then became of other sub-cultures as a way of self-expression and individuality. They were a big hit among British punk rock bands and New Wave musicians in the 1970's.
The boots feature a trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heeled loop. Originally designed for workers, the footwear was worn by postmen and policemen, as they were more comfortable, durable, and lightweight compared to competitors at the time.
Docs are now available in a multitude of styles and colours, the best of which are stocked here at tReds, as well as the original 1460s.

Dr Martens are internationally renowned footwear icons, thanks to their first and best known product the 1460 boot – named for the date the first boot came out in Dr Marten’s Northampton factory on 1st, April 1960. Originally designed for practicability, they’ve gained a huge prominence in the fashion industry.
The first Dr Marten boot was created by Klaus Martens, a doctor for the German army in WWII. Klaus was nursing a sprained ankle from a skiing accident and found that his army boots provided little support for his injury. He created an alternative, the Dr Marten boot, which resembled a military boot yet had much softer leather for comfort. However, his real innovation came in his reimagining of the thick, rubber soles of the boots.
