Happy birthday to Dr Martens: even after 60 years the iconic 1460 boots are still one of the most loved shoes by both celebrities and fashion lovers. The classic model is recognizable thanks to the 8 hoops, the Smooth leather and yellow stitching. In the beginning, they were available only in cherry red, and only later in black, worn by workers, postmen and police officers.
But it’s thanks to subcultures like the mod, skinhead and punk that they became a symbol for the new generations. A lot changed since then, Dr Martens are now a fashion statement, and during the years the brand collaborated with many fashion houses like Jean-Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Jimmy Choo and Yohji Yamamoto for some exclusive capsule collection. Their popularity is due to their versatility, from jeans, dresses and skirts, from day to night.
