Dr. Martens / Men
Founded by Klaus Märtens during the Second World War after he found his standard issue military boots were too uncomfortable so he designed his own boots with soft leather and using rubber from tires for an air-cushioned sole. Märtens would eventually open a factory in Munich where he implemented his designs into mass production and eventually British shoe manufacturer R. Griggs Group Ltd bought the rights to manufacture the boot in Britain where the name became anglicised to Dr Martens.
Following the UK release in 1960, Dr Martens became popular among workers such as postmen, police officers and factory workers, but were quickly adopted by skinheads and later in the 1970s, other subcultures including scooter riders, punks and new wave musicians began to adopt them.
