Lace-up Doc Martens have epitomized the culture known as punk from the very time that the first neck-chained, ripped garment, purple haired anarchist emerged from the recesses of the London Underground. Arguably a pop-culture icon, the signature boot is instantaneously recognizable.
Recently, Dr. Martens asked several prominent designers to redesign their famous 1460 boot (so named because of its landmark first distribution; April 1, 1960). The result is a positively delightful collection of footwear that would draw its wearer just as much attention on the streets, as it would on display in a modern art exhibit.
