Shiny Shiny, Shiny Boots by Dr Martens!
Legendary guitarist of British rock band The Who, once said that he used to go to bed on tour with two things: “A cognac bottle and a Dr. Martens boot.” These days you’ll find that the style of Dr Martens boots has not changed much from the times when Townshend windmilled and jumped around in his DM’s. In that era of flower power and dandyish psychedelia; Townshend looked, well, different. But more importantly, Dr Martens now had a flag bearer who was at the very heart of youth culture, for their iconic product.
And you’ll find that this devoted loyalty to the brand is not isolated to The Who’s guitarist. It is in fact at the very core of the brand’s enduring popularity and it also ensured that over the coming decades, when each subsequent youth subculture feverishly burned the trappings of the previous ‘fashion’ or ‘movement’, they frequently saved their cherished Dr. Martens from the flames, clutching them to their collective chest. So when punks came along, angry at a lack of opportunity and defiantly individualistic, they pulled DM’s on for the battle; when Two Tone fans spent hours choosing just the right suit, a crisp and clean pair of three-hole 1461 shoes was an essential accompaniment; and when Britpop kids might have kicked against grunge’s apparent apathy, a pair of cherry red 8-holers was often the perfect companion.
Now Dr Martens can encompass the vibes of hardcore, psychobilly, goth, industrial, grebo, grunge, Britpop, emo … the list goes on. We are particularly fond of the new shiny range, which come in an array of gorgeous colours. Perfect for the next musical revolution!
