Martin Roach (au). On April 1, 1960, the first Dr. Martens boot rolled off the production line at the Griggs family firm of shoemakers in the U.K. Today, the very name ‘Dr. Martens’ evokes thoughts of a brand that is famous the world over. These boots, affectionately known to their wearers as ‘DMs’ or ‘Docs’, have been part & parcel of a true ‘grass-roots’ culture for over 4 decades. This book recounts the story, decade by decade, of the music, people & places that breathed life into the boot on its journey from work-wear to in-wear. Also covers the underbelly of popular youth culture from 1960 to the present. There is also an interview with acclaimed designer Wayne Hemingway, co-founder of Red Or Dead, & cut-out photos of a dazzling array of DMs.
