The Origin of Docmart Shoes that Once Became the Identity of Workers and Punk Kids, Its Creator is Originally a Doctor.

Dream - Docmart or Doctor Martens shoes have their own characteristics and appeal for their fans. These shoes are timeless and have specific characteristics to distinguish their authenticity. Docmart has a very long history, namely when punk culture entered Indonesia. Some may think that Docmart shoes originated from England. Especially when associating them with skinhead, a subculture born in London, England in the 1960s. Through the skinhead community, Docmart has spread to all corners of the earth.

This shoe is similar to the boots that were born from the idea of a German army doctor during World War II, Klaus Martens, in 1945. He modified his military boots to make them more comfortable for use during duty.

The Origin of Docmart Shoes that Used to be the Identity of Workers and Punk Children, Created by a Doctor

One characteristic of Docmart shoes is the yellow stitching on the edges of the shoes, which is not too flashy in color. Docmart has a logo or embossed Dr. Martens mold on the bottom of the shoe sole. Now, to find out the complete history of how these Docmart shoes were born and widely used by the community until now, here is a summary as compiled by Dream through various sources.

"Modified German Army Doctor Shoes"

A German military doctor named Klaus Martens, who was on duty during World War II, suffered an injury while skiing in the mountainous region of Bavaria, Germany.

He feels that the military boots he uses are not comfortable, especially when his feet are injured. Not wanting to experience the same thing, he modified his shoes by adding a softer leather layer. He also added a cushioned sole to his designed shoes to make them more comfortable when used. In addition, the doctor also provided air cushions in his military boots.

Doctor Klaus planned to introduce his innovation to the public in 1947 together with his old friend, Herbert Funck. They finally produced a large quantity of boots by making several improvements. For example, they added used rubber from the Lutwaffe airfield in Germany. The sales turned out to be successful and experienced an increase.

Docmart Shoes Becoming the Identity of Workers

"In 1959, there was an English company called Griggs Group that bought the patent rights for Docmart to be produced in the country."

Since then, Docmart shoes have been considered as an identity for workers or the working class in Northern Britain. Not only that, the shoes have penetrated the skinhead subculture and the Vespa community, becoming symbols of freedom and resistance. As time goes by, Docmart shoes have become increasingly famous because they are widely used by members of punk rock, hardcore, straight edge, and ska bands. The popularity of Docmart shoes has reached a wide range of people, not just the punk subculture.

"Docmart has become a large and highly commercial industry. However, unfortunately, now Docmart shoe users are no longer paying much attention to the meaning of the shoes. In fact, the shoes no longer represent an identity for workers. This is because the price of the shoes has become increasingly expensive."
