Introduction

The first boot was born on 1 April 1960 in Wollaston, England, and was so called the “1460”. For the six decades since, Dr. Martens has transcended youth and subcultures demonstrating its unrivalled appeal and ability to underpin trends.

The 1460 boot, with its iconic and instantly recognisable design characteristics: the yellow welt stitch, grooved sole and black and yellow heel loop, still provides the foundation for all other product expressions and represents c.40% of sales. The brand remains as relevant now as ever. It is still being adopted by those looking to express their individual style and attitude and who appreciate uncompromising quality and durability.
