Last week we went around Melbourne to create this short video clip on our upcoming Dr Martens! It was really fun creating this, so expect more videos to come in the future from us. Video taking and editing is addictive!

Ever wonder where and how Dr Martens came about? Why they became such a fashionable icon back in the early 70s? Dr Martens was designed by a man named Klaus Martens. He was not a shoe designer, but in fact a doctor that served in the German army during World War 2! He found the army boots to be uncomfortable and re-designed it with soft leather and air-padded soles. He’s indeed a man with many great talents. The Classic 1460 Boots was the first boots released in the UK (on 1st April 1960).
Doc martens were significant to the British punk youth and skinheads. Take Sid Vicious for example who is a member of The Sex Pistols, he was one of the first to wear DMs. Wearing Doc Martens for these guys was also a mimicking form of a man who is overly dressed for work.
