  • Dr. Martens Brand
    -
    The first Dr. Martens boots arrived in the United Kingdom from Germany in 1960. With an eight-eyelet, cherry-red, Nappa leather design. They were popular among workers such as postmen, police officers and factory workers. By the late 1960s, 'skinheads' started wearing Dr. Martens boots. By the late 1970s, Dr. Martens boots were popular among some British punk rock and New Wave musicians, and soon many punk fans were wearing them. The boots and shoes then became popular among other youth subcultures. Dr. Martens sponsored West Ham United (football club) from 1998 to 2003. When a new main stand was built at Upton Park in 2001, the stand was named the 'Dr. Martens Stand' in recognition of the sponsorship link. In the 2000s, Dr. Martens were sold exclusively under the AirWair name, and come in dozens of different styles, including conventional black shoes, sandals and steel-toed boots.
