The british brand Dr. Martens was founded by german military doctor Klaus Maertens in 1947. Dr. Martens were originally a modest work-wear boot that was even sold as a gardening shoe at one stage, but transformed into one of the most culturally relevant brands of modern time.
Dr. Martens appeal to people who have their own individual style but share a united spirit – authentic characters who stand for something. People who possess a proud sense of self- expression. People who are different.
