Dr Martens is an instantly recognisable brand that makes no bones about being British. Rock up in a pair of Dr Martens boots or wearing their clothes and youre part of a club of people who dont believe that the past should be a rigid template for the future. Dr Martens is for people who arent afraid of embracing new and dynamic designs, whilst maintaining their fashion consciousness.
Roots and bootsThe Dr Martens online shop gives an in-depth look at the evolution of the brand, from its anti-establishment roots in the 1960s to its media-savvy status today. While some were wearing Adidas trainers in the 1970s, those who wanted to break away and create their own identity opted for the classic Dr Martin boot. As brands like G-Star flirted with inspirations from the States, Dr Martens was determined to unveil the best of British.
An iconic brandDr Martens have attracted a wide and prestigious following. As the Dr Martens online shop says of Who guitarist, Pete Townsend: he used to go to bed with two things: a cognac bottle and a Dr Martens boot. Today, celebrities and fashion icons are far more likely to use Dr Martens clothing to make a statement than clothing from other major brands, such as Esprit. Dr Martens are still associated with a desire to break away from convention and forge your own path.
Dare to be differentWhile this attitude was once linked with volatile, revolutionary behaviour, Dr Martens is a much more understood brand. The boots are available in a range of colours and the clothing is both stylish and smart, whilst still retaining that modish character that sets it apart from the crowd. At Stylight, as well as other brands such as Camel Active, were proud to offer our customers the best of the Dr Martens collection. Enjoy and dare to be different!
March Against Tradition in Dr. Martens
In the world of footwear only one brand reigns supreme. Tough enough to handle decades of change, Dr. Martens has maintained their rebel cool appearance, while gaining a sense of rock and roll nostalgia.
Born from the subculture of rowdy British teens and the working class, Dr. Martens have gone on to symbolize all things punk and unconventional. Looking to take a step into history without losing your modern tastes? We’re showing you how to update the classic Dr. Martens.
Ready to Rock
Wear the famous footwear in its most iconic fashion. Channel all things rock and roll in your Dr. Martens when you wear the classic lace-up boots with your skinniest denim and your choice of a full-on fur coat or a more moderate jean jacket.
Disheveled and anti-color, rep your Dr. Martens with a grungy approach. No need to breakout the coal liner and hair grease. Instead, pair a set of leather, low-cut kicks with baggy bottoms, a slouchy tee and a strategically tied flannel across your hips for a 90s-inspired look.
Right on Trend
Though the history of Dr. Martens may be war-related and punk heavy, the 90s brought a universal approachability to the brand. Not just for the rebellious youth across the pond or the rock-N-rollers on stage, the durable shoes could be worn by supermodels, actresses and everyday people across the globe. Follow suit and wear your Dr. Martens with your closet staples and ample amounts of color.
From Pete Townshend to Miley Cyrus, Dr. Marten’s have been worn by all to bring a ready-to-rock look to any wardrobe. Style the footwear with modern styles to welcome this blast from the past into the 21st century.
