So they are back..I knew it, like anything buried way back in a box in the attic: or in my case just donated to the Salvation Army (for whatever good they ever did there). I looked terrible in them, big and clumpsy feet on a rather big and clumpsy teenager. Never the less, everybody had them and to join in on the trend there was different ways to go about it. The most radical girls made the steel visable scarping the front of the boots on any pavement and rocks avaliable. Cutting and ripping their jeans and joyfully jumping in their docs in the morning. What was it all about, a fashion statement? something that would rebel against any baby blue ralph lauren shirt or other well dressed levis girl? In what way I never really figured out. "Rebellic, punk, rock, here I come: crazy wild child or something like that?"..I gave it a go like any other semi blonde teen back then. One thing is sure, I don't want to do it again, god no..
To leave on a positive note, I have to commend the brand for charging the market with new colors, luring Pink and Flower prints and there will surely be new users that didn't do a 'punk' version of it all and they can reviwe their Dr Martens in a combo of exquisite dresses.
"A bag of mix", Agyness Deyn combines white Dr.Martens with rolled up jeans, navy stripes, over sized suit jacket and a taxi driver hat..
Red high heel Dr Marten boots..
Brief history about the 'brand' Dr Martens:
Doc Martens is a special brand, its history going back until the World War II. Their inventor, Dr. Klaus Martens was a German army doctor during the war.
He needed to create special shoes for himself due to an injury that he sustained while on vacation.
In 1947 Klaus went into business with his friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, and the two began designing "comfort" shoes that were wildly popular with women over the age of 40.
60 years after, they have become, once again, a must-have when it comes to fashion, attitude and style.
Like Dr Martens?
