Shmooz are proud to have been a Dr. Marten stockist since 2018! Providing all of the goods from the
specially designed Air Cushioned Sole unit, these are exceptionally comfortable boots! What you
waiting for? Grab yourself a pair!
Dr. Martens started back in 1947 when after the war, Dr. Klaus Maertens designed a boot, with an Air Cushioned Sole, to aid his recovery of a broken foot. He then formed a partenership with an old friend Dr. Herbert Funk where they use disused military supplies to create their boots.
1959 saw them advertise their footwear overseas, where it was seen by the Griggs family based in England. An exclusive license was acquired which gave home to the classic 1460 Pascal boot we recognise today. It has the Air Cushioned sole, yellow loop stitiching and an eight hole lace system. It is the shoe "with Bouncing Soles".
