Doc Martens have been a staple of the “getting shit done” community for years. There’s no messing around. These are shoes you wear to get things done. Think of them as the total opposite of slippers: Doc Martens are for the kind of guy who doesn’t take shit and will kick you if you wrong his woman like some bad ass Charles Bronson character. Well, maybe not that tough, but you get the picture.
Needless to say, Doc Martens are set to make a comeback this fall. Outside of Manolith offices in LA they’ve already had a very successful winter so consider it only a matter of months before they come back around to the fashion circles and start reappearing in the men’s magazines come September. They’re leather boots, and they WILL last forever – unlike the pair of Japanese sneakers you’re too scared to let outside the house lest they get dirty.
Not only are they coming back in style but they’ve always been a part of a manly dudes wardrobe for the past 50 years. Designed in Germany right after the end of the 2nd World War they made their way to the UK and by the beginning of the 60′s had found a way into the reggae and mod culture of the time. They’ve been popular in the British music scene since then all the way through until today.
But you’ll probably like them just for the sheer comfort and their distinctive style, and the fact that they’ll last though any winter. Now is about the time you should buy a pair for the sole fact that you should get your winter shopping done now; most places will be getting rid of winter clothes and now is the best time to get some. And with a inimitable style like Doc Martens there’s no way that these things will go out of fashion.
They come in a zillion different colors and styles. Doc Martens USA carries a great selection of dress shoes too, ranging from the classy ‘Brando’ model that wouldn’t been seen out of place on the red carpet to the Ska and reggae influenced ‘Brogue’. Act quick; this label is known for being hard to come by come winter when every one’s trying to get a pair.
