Dr. Martens and me, a love story! This popular pair of boots has been following me since the age of 5. Today I own 3 pairs that I wear during all the seasons.
|5 years old, first pair!|
|9 years old, made me look innocent.|
|12 years old, made me look like a rebellious teenager.|
16 years old, I still wear them often.
They look awesome with navy, grey or
black skinny jeans.
Those belong to my Sister but she stopped wearing
them. I think they are my favorite. I love to wear
them with a light grey dress and black tights.
Little history lesson:
They were designed in 1946 by Klaus Märtens with the help of his friend Herbert Funck who was an engineer. This shoe allowed Martens to move more easily, after a skiing accident.
In the 1960s, that Dr. Martens started to be sold. But they were only used by workers and factory men.
It wasn't before the beginnings of the punk era in the 1970s that wearing Docs became a cultural statement. I'd rather actually call it an anti-fashion statement!
This is when the company started diversifying their products but of course without loosing their signature.
Almost every pair produced today still have the distinctive two-tone sole and the yellow stitching on top. That's how we all recognise Docs so quickly!

The pastel collection, in case you don't assume the badass look or if you
want a Lolita look.
