Doctor Marten and the 320 page book

An emerging trend from this newish blog seems to be that we’re running waaaaay behind the times on what’s been happening in some areas of the footwear world over the past few years. Back in 2003 Doctor Marten published a book about the history of all the lovely shoes that he made over the previous 40 years. Having never owned a pair of the iconic boots is really no excuse is it?

Anyway, the whole point of this book is that Doc Marten boots have been there when all the trends of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and the last decade emerged. From mods to modern-day thrash metal, Doc Martens have always been worn by ‘alternative’ music fans and they show no signs of stopping now.
