Shmooz are happy to now stock Dr.Martens as of 2018. We have mix of the classic 1460 Pascal to a few seasonal items. With the Air Cushioned Sole they are a very comfortable boot.
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".
