Once the genie had been let out of the bottle back in the 1960s, the vapors of Dr. Martens' rebellious spirit could not be contained and the boot seeped into every corner and crevice of youth culture. Thus sets the stage for a brand synonymous with youth, alternative and angst. From the 1950's onward teenagers have made it their mission to set themselves a part from their elders and what better way to do it than fashion? If you're like us at Shopping Blitz, the Dr. Martens brand makes you nostalgic for the days of your youth, where being different was the coolest thing about you. But I guess even mentioning our age makes us a bit uncool?
Today the Dr. Martens brand has evolved into an iconic extension of creative expression, worn by people who classify themselves as individuals, free-thinkers, those that make it their mission to think outside the box. There is a rebellious kid in all of us waiting to blast through the preconceived notions of the past and create a world of our own making, a better one, one that our younger self would approve of. Might as well do it sporting a pair of Docs.
