Dr. Martens boots: Iconic and full of history
The origin of the brand we know today as Dr. Martens dates back to 1901, when the Griggs family started manufacturing work boots in Wollaston, England, becoming a footwear staple of the time. Simultaneously, in the 1940s, a young German doctor developed an air-cushioned sole to make walking more comfortable after breaking his foot in an accident.
The success of Dr. Martens' air-cushioned sole reached England and in 1959 the Griggs family bought the patent, changing the name to Dr. Martens and thus marking a whole era.
Over time, Martens went from being work boots to an emblem of the most non-conformist subcultures, and today the brand's shoes continue to appeal to all those who pride themselves on their individuality and groundbreaking style.

From work boots to a fashion classic: Dr Martens 1460
Dr. Martens 1460 boots were produced in 1960 as work boots. They were the first shoes in the then Griggs family to feature the unique air-cushioned insole, a technology that had been invented by Dr. Klaus Maertens. Several decades later, these 8-eyelet boots with yellow stitching are still part of the style of millions of people around the world, and their fame never seems to diminish. At SVD you can find both classic models and collaborations with the most relevant brands and designers of the moment.
The first shoes: Dr Martens 1461
A year after the creation of the 1460, Dr. Martens crafted its first shoe with Airwair technology, the 1461. Its sturdy and functional 3-eyelet design lends itself to both the most daring and the most elegant styles, once again proving its appeal.
The reimagining of a classic: The Dr Martens Chelsea boots, or 2976
In the 1970s, Dr. Martens had the idea of reimagining the classic Chelsea boots and the result was surprising. Loaded with personality and with the unmistakable Dr. Martens DNA, the Chelsea 2976 is rugged and easily paired with any outfit.
