Dr. Martens (or Doc Martens)

John Marine | 9:00 PM | | | |
(UPDATED: August 21, 2017)

A German named Dr. Klaus Martens in 1945 made an air-cushioned shoe for him to walk better after a skiing accident he suffered. Klaus Martens and Dr. Herbert Funck started Dr. Maertens in 1959 and based its operations in Wollaston, England. It would later have its name changed to Dr. Martens. Dr. Martens features the world's most popular industrial-type shoes. The British maker celebrated their golden anniversary in 2010 as their first shoe was released in 1960. Their footwear is worn by both males and females. They can be for the tough dude, the trendy girl, the girl who wants to mix girly cute with a tough pair of boots, and people like that. I'll do my best to blog on these because I know there are people likely going to want to want their own pair of Doc Martens.

What Makes Dr. Martens so Popular?

I have mentioned how these shoes have appealed to types ranging from the fashionable set to the more hard set. A usual pair of Dr. Martens are some industrial-type boots that are not just for the working set. There are also some Doc Martens oxford shoes. Females even have some Dr. Martens mary janes.

Dr. Martens, then, are tough shoes for those who want to make a tough statement. They are shoes much different from a pair of sneakers, a pair of sandals, or anything like that. These are statement-makers from casually dressed folks as well as the punk and Goth sets. Nothing soft about these shoes. I don't think people (or even Dr. Martens themselves) particularly care if Dr. Martens aren't pretty, cute, or beautiful. These are shoes of character meant for the person who wants to be distinctive and want to stand out rather than fit in.

What to Wear With Dr. Martens?

There are very few people who think they can go with anything. The most common sort of feminine look is usually when Dr. Martens boots are paired with fishnet tights. Girly girls who want to show some toughness will often wear cute dresses or cute skirts paired with a tough pair of Dr. Martens combat boots. Even girls who want to look tough while wearing a dainty evening dress would pair them with some tough Dr. Martens lace-up boots. If you read my blog post about jean shorts with tights, one pair of shoes worn with tights are a pair of Dr. Martens boots, and especially with fishnet tights.

Us guys usually go with a pair of jeans to go along with some Dr. Martens boots. Some men even wear Dr. Martens oxfords for casual and even some dressy casual outfits. Boots and oxfords are offered for males from Dr. Martens.

Want an example of wearing Dr. Martens with some unexpected outfit? One time, E! Network show "Fashion Police" once had Kelly Osbourne wearing a long champagne-colored dress while wearing a pair of Dr. Martens combat boots.

Dr. Martens: What You May Know

This section takes a look at many kinds of Dr. Martens footwear. Even though I posted on "John's Blog Space" about this company long ago, this post only focuses on the shoes and not so much on examples of outfits worn with Dr. Martens. Here are some Dr. Martens in pictures:

Dr. Martens 1460 boots
^ from: - These are the classic Dr. Martens 1460 boots. This specific picture is a Women's pair of the classic 1460 boots.

girly Dr. Martens boots
^ from: - If the previous pair were too plain for my female audience, here are a more girly pair of Dr. Martens.

Dr. Martens ankle boots
^ from: - Dr. Martens' ankle boots for Women.

Dr. Martens oxfords

Dr. Martens feminine oxfords
^ from: - Dr. Martens can have some intricate designs, such as these obviously feminine Dr. Martens.

Dr. Martens mary janes

Dr. Martens sandals

These represent the counterculture shoes Dr. Martens provides. Nothing cute or pretty- just a tough pair of shoes that are as tough as the ones who wear them. Their toughness can be had for adults and even children.

Dr. Martens... Chic?

Can Dr. Martens be chic? Believe it or not, you'd be surprised at what Dr. Martens offers, especially for women. These are Dr. Martens that are more chic than the tough shoes you've seen in the previous section.

Dr. Martens Leanne Boots
^ from: - Tall wedge boots for women from Dr. Martens.

Dr. Martens Belissa Boots
^ from: - A chunky heel and buckles secure these hot Dr. Martens boots.

Dr. Martens Maria pumps
^ from: - Do you girls like your Dr. Martens with a heel and open toes?.

Dr. Martens Marie flats
^ from: - Ballet flats... of the Dr. Martens variety.

So you've seen the Dr. Martens you know. What do you make of THESE? These are Dr. Martens with a chic edge. They still have the edgy and tough soles distinctive of Dr. Martens.

Dr. Martens Thoughts

I'm not crazy over these shoes. However, it doesn't mean I hate them. I'm just not that into them as many people are. It's like how I feel about Converses. So why did I create this blog entry? It's because I know there are people who like these shoes and want a professional blog entry done on these shoes.

I am pretty sure people probably think all I feature is cute fashions. Not sure what my audience actually thinks about what it is I post about, but I am sure there are people out there who probably wonder if I even pay attention to fashions other than anything cute or pretty. Surely this post will show that I do pay some attention in regards to various other fashions. Just because I don't mention certain fashions doesn't mean I am not mindful of them. I just choose any number of different topics to keep my stylish space (StyleSpace) active. Hope you appreciate my efforts.
