Dr. Martens - A History of Standing For Something

Since 1960 Dr. Martens have been adopted and subverted by countless rebellious individuals, subcultures and tribes. Dr. Martens wearers bring our shoes and boots to life - these are the people who stand out and stand for something.

What do you stand for?
Tell us at:

I've won a pair of Docs upon entering a competition, so I guess luck was on my side this time! Naturally, I felt like sharing this video (no one made me do it and no, I didn't have to!), not only because these boots have a major role in my concept of style but also they have been part of my life since I was 13 or so. I have a history with Dr. Martens, a love story actually. From skinheads to hooligans, from iconic punk rock stars to working class rude boys... Should I just start singing These boots are made for walking?


  1. Hell, even the most radical satanic black metaler had a pair of doc's at some point of his/her life...

  2. Ainda não conhecia esse video, acho que retrata bem o espírito das Dr. Martens!
    Por acaso estava mesmo a precisar de umas para este inverno :P

    Tem um bom fim de semana!

  3. Congrats!! I've made it to the short list twice, this time included...but you beat me!
    Doc's will forever have a special place in my heart/wardrobe :)
