Doc Martens D.I.Y

Am I dreaming or is there a palpable grunge resurgence in the air? Judging by the growing Melbourne grunge scene as well as the ubiquity of flanno these days it would only seem fitting that the humble Doc Marten should follow suit. Designed originally as combat boots the Dr. Marten has gone from being the Westwood era shoe of choice through to the shoe of choice for future serial killers – now it’s back on the style radar…

On top of that Dr. Marten is giving you the chance to design your own shoe – beyond an office hours boredom killer, the winning entry will also be used to produce a design for a future boot. So hop on down to and create your own Dr. Marten now (it won’t take much to beat out my shameless attempt at cross promotional footwear…)
