DR MARTENS: A HISTORY OF REBELLIOUS SELF-EXPRESSION

The Dr Martens story directly mirrors many of the twists and turns of youth culture.

The boot started life as a work-wear item, but was quickly adopted by a variety of youth subcultures and style tribes over the ensuing decades.

The brand also found itself championed by fashion designers, protest culture, musicians, free-thinkers and a myriad of independent, rebellious characters.

Half a century after the first pair of boots rolled off the production line, the world of social media and networks introduced the Age of the Individual.

Rather than dilute DM’s cultural relevance, the global village has instead introduced a new, diverse generation of digitised consumers to the brand, each possessed of an individual style but linked by a united spirit.

THE DR MARTENS BOOK:

In Dr Martens: A History of Rebellious Self Expression, best-selling author Martin Roach has written an exhaustive chronicle of one of Britain’s most enduring, diverse and influential brands.

The narrative is told through in-depth research, dozens of interviews with high profile musicians, subcultural individuals and creative personalities.

This meticulous and comprehensive brand history is complemented by over 220 photographs (many previously unpublished), as well as rare memorabilia.  

This book is the definitive work on one of modern culture’s most unique, complex and authentic brands.

There will always be Dr Martens as long as rebellious self-expression continues to exist.

This book is that remarkable story.
