You have probably heard of Dr. Martens Boots but there are some points that I am sure you have never heard of these boots. Below is a list of the seven things you never heard of Dr. Martens Boots:
- These boots have been around for more than 50 years. The first official Dr. Martens Bootswere rolled on April 1, 1960.
- These shoes were invented by a German doctor during World War II in 1945 when Dr. Klaus Maertens was injured while skiing and found his military boots too uncomfortable for the foot. From there, he collaborated with a British shoemaker (R. Griggs Group Ltd) who later changed his name to Dr Martens Bootsand also added yellow stitches.
- Dr Martens Bootswere was originally intended for the working class
- Dr. Marten's "Bouncing Soles" are resistant to many chemicals such as oil, grease, acid gasoline and alkali.
- It's funny but Pope John Paul II had a "custom white pair" for himself.
- Production of Dr. Martens Boots was moved to Thailand and China in 2003 due to reduced sales.
- Later, in 2004, their Cobb's Lane factory began making these boots again and Cobbs Lane factory is responsible for their Made in England line until now. This factory is the only English company producing Dr Martens Boots. As the original specifications dictate, the shoes are handmade. They cost about $ 200 but last for several years.
