Dr. Martens Boots: Colors And Fun!

by - Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Sometime in the 1940s, Klaus Märtens, a doctor in the German army during the second World War realized that his pair of standard-issue army boots were causing discomfort on his hurt heel so during his recovery period, he came up with the idea of improving the boots.  To make it comfortable, he used soft leather and applied air-cushioned soles which was then trademarked as AirWair years later.

Thanks to Dr. Klaus Märtens.  His experiment has not only introduced feet-friendly boots as the army-inspired footwear has now become a sense of fashion.  Some years back, colors has been added to Dr. Martens or Doc Martens or as I fondly refer to it as DMs boots to sprinkle some fun!
Here are five of my favorite DMs 8 Eyelet Boots in different hues:
I so like the Mint DMs!  It looks refreshing and light. 

Do I own a pair?  No, I don’t but I sure wish I do!
