A very distinctive symbol of rebellion and disaffected youth is about to open its first-ever retail store in Auckland on Thursday and we are here for it.
Dr Martens began life in England back in the 1950s as a collab between a company making hard wearing working men’s boots and a air-cushioned sole invented by a certain Dr Klaus Märtens.
Today they’re worn by everyone from punk and grunge enthusiasts to cool librarians with socks, but one thing’s for sure, they have never gone out of style.
The new store will stock the largest range of mens, womens and kids styles available in New Zealand including full vegan ranges alongside Originals as well as global collaborations.
Matt Hapgood of Dr. Martens Retail Australia and New Zealand says: “Dr. Martens creates distinctive footwear built and adopted by generations of rebellious individuals not afraid to stand out from the crowd. Our arrival in NZ is very exciting and will allows us to connect with our loyal Kiwi Docs fans and provide them with a premium Dr. Martens shopping experience”.
The store opens this Thursday and believe us when we say, the hype is real.
