Happy 60th, Dr. Martens

I have sinned and bought a pair of the high heel Dr. Martens about at the moment. As it transpires, there are to be a lot of takes on this classic boot about to hit the market.

Baby Phat, Preen, Jimmy Choo, and Vivienne Westwood are just a few of the designers who have taken on the challenge of taking the original 1460 kicks and reinventing them.

I am verging on distress after learning you can’t buy these one-of-a-kind marabou-festooned or indeed porn-covered pairs, which segues neatly onto the fact that there are 69 designs in total online. Whether you're a Dr. Marten lover or hater, I would urge you to check them out, because they rock.

The ones featured here are in order of the gallery;
