How Doc Martens Boots Became Iconic

Upon the arrival of my first pair of Dr Martens boots, I got inspired by the iconic item. They can be seen at movie premieres as well as at live concerts, Emma Watson wears them as well as Orlando Bloom: Doc Martens are among the most sought-after shoe brands in the world. Over time, they have sometimes been less trendy, sometimes more. But today, the cult brand has established itself as a fixed part of the fashion world and yet is far more than just a fashion phenomenon.
