Dr. Martens Online Shop
A legend among the shoe manufacturers: Dr. Martens. Since the postwar period the brand has reached cult status. Dr. Klaus Martens developed the first prototypes in 1945. The sturdy worker boots were made from material of the German Luftwaffe. The shoes were of such a high quality that they could even withstand acid, fuel and oil. Since the mid 60s the shoes have become much more than working shoes. Left-wingers wore the boots to express their solidarity with the working class, but also mods, poppers, wavers and of course skinheads made these their trademark shoes. Today they are still worn in combination with a bomber jacket and drainpipe jeans. Legends like the 8-hole boots will probably never die out. Get your Dr.Martens boots at EMP!
