Kick it old school in a pair of classic Doc Martens
Few boots have earned worldwide renown and cult status quite like Doc Martens. First developed back in 1960 in Northamptonshire, England, Docs have since been a wardrobe staple for everyone from factory workers to punks, musos and — of course — skaters.
Though they can take some wearing in, Doc Martens will be the comfiest shoes you own once you’ve broken them in and will withstand years of punishment thanks to their premium construction including their iconic tough yellow stitching. With air cushioned “bouncing” soles, welted construction and anti-slip properties these boots will take you wherever you want to go.
Emulate 1980s skating rebels in a pair of low-top Dr Martens shoes — available in leather and vegan styles
Low rise Doc Martens like the 1461 Dr Martens shoes and 1461 Vegan Dr Martens shoes make for a great skate option thanks to the wider range of movement and ankle flexion they allow. Super popular as school skate shoes, these classic Docs will take you from the skate park to work or school no trouble at all.
