The year cult shoe brand Dr Martens celebrated its 50th year. The DM boot has had an iconic place on footwear history with its role in many different youth sub cultures from punks to skin heads and Goths. In my teenage years my black DM boots were permanently welded to my feet, these were the days before I started crippling myself with high heels. As a teenager I was a bit of a Goth (although I think Goths were a bit different back then to they are now) and also went through various stages of dressing in a way that could probably be described as Indie or grunge. My outfits consisted mainly of long skirts or shorter skirts with black opaque tights and velvet jackets from second hand shops with black Dr Marten boots.
With the whole grunge revival going on, I have been really tempted to invest in a pair of Dr Martens. They are so versatile and comfy and I know I would get loads of wear out of them. But another part of me thinks that I have already been there and done that.
I was really pleased to discover a whole range of alternative Dr. Martens on Spartoo. Ideal for a fresh take on my old favourite and perfect for the grown up grunge girl.
Did anyone else used to wear Dr Martens? Will you be wearing them again?
