50 Years of Dr. Martens

Posted Jun 11, 2010 by Emanuel in men's boots, dr. martens, the noisettes, 50 years of Dr. Martens, music, women's boots

The history of Dr. Martens runs hand in hand with its rich iconographic status: the Doc Martens boot is a distinctive part of aesthetic movements that represent many groups of people and periods in time. In celebration of Dr. Martens 50th anniversary, a hip campaign has been launched synthesizing this history through the eyes of young and emerging artists, musicians, and directors. Ten bands were asked to record their versions of cult classic tracks that represent the spirit of Dr. Martens over the past five decades. Fully documented over YouTube, Dr. Martens shows that even after 50 years, the brand can stay current without losing its classic styling.

It's really quite fitting that Dr. Martens chose to use such visually stunning videos to celebrate this iconography. Here's Britain's The Noisette's rocking some Docs with a cover of the Buzzcock's Ever Fallen in Love:
