A Tradition of Work

The first pair of Dr. Martens 1460 boots rolled off the production line on April 1, 1960, and immediately found a home on the feet of working Britain. Post-war work boots were sturdy but extremely uncomfortable — and the men and women working the front lines of industry wanted something better. They found it in the 1460: its unique, comfortable air-cushioned sole, combined with the durable new upper of the boot, proved the ideal choice for those putting in long hours in demanding work environments.

To this very day, we stay true to our origins: designing and engineering innovative, cutting edge industrial footwear that works as hard as you do.
