Since 1960, Dr. Martens AirWair boots have been worn by men and women who wanted to be different. The members of every style sub-culture, from mod to punk, had a Dr. Martens style they identified with.
And seriously, the original 1460 style still packs just as much of a sartorial impact as it did over 50 years ago. Wanting to get in on this secret to timeless relevance, we did a little digging. We invited ourselves over for an exclusive peak inside their factory and London design HQ — and asked a lot of questions — to see how this Brit brands keeps it real.
