Throughout our history, Dr. Martens footwear has been adopted, customised and subverted by countless rebellious characters and subcultures. These are the people who stand out from the crowd in their own unique way and for many, their journey of self-expression has always been accompanied by a pair of Docs. Dr. Martens celebrates these individuals - from first timers to those who have worn the brand forever, authentic characters that stand for something.
Dr. Martens famous air-cushioned sole, designed by German inventor, Dr. Klaus Maertens, was engineered to meet the need of providing support and comfort for his broken foot. The Dr. Martens 8-eye boot, manufactured by R Griggs and Co, British boot makers, with its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heel-loop, was a boot for workers, initially worn by postmen and policemen; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to its competitors at the time.
A specific range of “Made In England” products are still manufactured in the Cobbs Lane factory, Wollaston, England which has been making footwear since 1901. It is the home of the original Dr. Martens boot and the company headquarters, and within this small factory works a team of people schooled in traditional shoe-making and the unique process that makes Dr. Martens like no other shoe on earth.
With further offices in London, Portland and across Asia, and an expanding global retail portfolio, Dr. Martens sells shoes, clothing and accessories from all parts of the world, in addition to collaborating with well-known partners as diverse as Yohji Yamamoto, Jean Paul Gauthier and The Beano.
Company culture is one of encouraging an appreciation for those possessing a proud sense of self-expression. Our British origins give us a self-deprecating sense of humour; yet we are unashamedly focused about the business of making high quality boots and shoes.
