Dr Martens have been making fabulous shoes and boots since 1960 when the first boot was invented - the number 1460, refers to the date that they were launched in to the world, the 1st April 1960, not a lot of people know that! They have gone on to make millions of pairs since and sell the collections all over the world. We have a small selection of Docs to buy online and as with all styles from Shoes.co.uk you get quick free delivery as well!
When the Dr. Martens boot first catapulted from a working-class essential to a counter-cultural icon back in the 1960s, the world was pre-internet, pre-MTV, pre-CD, pre-mp3s, pre-mobile phones … hey, they’d only just invented the teenager. In the years before the boot’s birthday, 1st April, 1960, kids just looked like tribute acts to their parents, younger but the same. Rebellion was only just on the agenda for some – for most kids of the day, starved of music, fashion, art and choice, it was not even an option.
