Dr Martens are an internationally renowned footwear item. Bursting on to the fashion scene in the 1960s, the classic Dr Martens have been seen as a punk item, a fashion must have and a durable boot. However, despite the brands huge global success the most popular style is still the original 1460 Boot. This 8 eyelet boot took its name from the year it was first conceived, 1960, combined with the amount of eyelets that this iconic boot has. The 1460 has always been popular with punk and new wave music, but one of its largest endorsements came when The Who guitarist Pete Townshend donned a pair of black 1460s when he performed with his band in the late 1960s.
