wearing Dr. Martens in the rain - about

Dr. Martens boots are incredibly popular, but do you know why?

That's because they are durable, stylish, and provide versatility. They became popular in the 1960s because of the skinhead subculture and later gained popularity among other subcultures too, such as punk, rock, and scooter drivers.

If your boots get wet, the best things to do are to remove the excess water, remove the laces and insoles, and let your boots air dry.

If you need more details on how to care for your Dr. Martens the right way, you can always ask the brand by sending an email or asking in one of their boutiques.
