British brand Dr Martens was introduced in 1960 by Griggs family as a revolutionary working mans boot label, incorporating the air cushioned rubber soles invented by Dr Maertens & Dr Funck.The boot with it's air cushioned rubber soles were definetly something different & which sat very well with the emerging British youth cultures, who strived to be differentiate themselves from what had gone be before. Dr Martens quickly became adopted by these new subcultures, starting with the mod & skinhead tribes of the 60's & later the punk movement with all it's different strands. Even though youth culture is different today than it was during the revolutionary years of the 1960's & 1970's & the different tribes aren't as visible anymore, Dr Martens shoes retain a prominent place in the youth's wardrobe, a true testament to the genuinity of Dr Martens.
