Dr. Martens transformed from a functional work boot to an icon within a social revolution. Very much a popular shoe for the British working classes, the style was suddenly adapted by the punks and skinheads of the late 60's/early 70's. Since then, the Dr. Martens brand has become a symbol of self expression and an essential part of the wardrobe for the diverse individual.

For five decades Dr. Martens boots have been worn by workers, for whom they were designed, but also by rebels and non-conformists of all stripes. The boots were first adopted by the skinheads and then by a succession of other sub-cultures, for their authentic, working class appeal.
