Happy 50th Birthday Dr. Marten!

April 1, 2010

Thought I’d make a quick post to mention Dr. Marten’s 50th anniversary today.

Yes that’s right, 50 years since this strong British subculture brand (developed by German, Dr. Klaus Marten) launched their famous and distinctive boot.

To mark the occasion Dr. Marten have a series of competitions and offers running on their website,  http://50.drmartens.com/

Additionally, 10 featured musical artists have recorded their own special adaptations of classic tracks in ode to mark the said fiftieth anniversary, from the Noisette’s to the Cinematic Orchestra. All videos will be uploaded within the next 10 weeks on the Dr. Marten website.

The below video shows the Noisettes’ Donna Summer-esk version of ‘Ever Fallen in Someone (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)’ originally by the Buzzcocks-obviously echoing Dr. Marten’s associations with the punk era.

Naturally, all the artists featured in the videos are wearing DM’s, there are links on the website which feature the exact designs the artist’s are wearing so you too can purchase a pair-fancy that!
