Dr Martens

 

Started by the Griggs family in 1901, Dr Marten's footwear was at the heart of the footwear industry for decades and earning a reputation for sturdy and durable work boots. post-1945, Dr Maertens developed an air-cushioned sole to aid in the recovery of a broken foot. Collaborating with an associate, production of an air-cushioned boot began in 1947. The Griggs family caught wind of Dr Maertens product and acquired a licence to produce them; then after years of development and ingenuity, the first 'Air Wear' eight-holed boot was created in 1960, dubbed the 1460 after the date of it's inception - 1st April 1960.
