Doc martens Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Dr. Martens is an English footwear and clothing brand, headquartered in Wollaston in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. They also make a range of accessories – shoe care products, clothing, bags, etc. In addition to Dr. Martens, they are also commonly known as Doc Martens, Docs, or DMs. The footwear is distinguished by its air-cushioned sole (dubbed Bouncing Soles), upper shape, welted construction, and yellow stitching. The boots have been the choice of footwear among various groups in British culture: in the 1960s skinheads started to wear them, "Docs" or "DMs" being the usual naming, and by the late 1980s, they were popular among scooter riders, punks, goths, some new wave musicians, and members of other youth subcultures, most notably the grunge fashion scene in the early nineties.

In 2006, Griggs' 1460 Dr. Martens AirWair boot was named in the list of British design icons which included Concorde, Mini, Jaguar E-Type, Aston Martin DB5, Supermarine Spitfire, Tube map, World Wide Web, and the AEC Routemaster bus.

A piece was written by Lizzy Acker for OREGON LIVE in which Dr. Martens Portland is accused of evoking white supremacist symbol, according to an activists

Activists are asking why Dr. Martens chose an image that resembles a classic white supremacist skinhead symbol for a holiday billboard in inner Southeast Portland.

The billboard, which is visible at Southeast Madison and Seventh Avenue, displays black boots with red plaid laces and the phrase, "Rock the holidays." On Twitter, anti-hate group activist Sam Sachs pointed out that black Dr. Martens -- colloquially called "Doc Martens" -- with red laces are a white supremacist symbol that implies the wearer has committed an act of violence. According to Randy Blazak, chair of Oregon's Coalition Against Hate Crime and a criminologist who specializes in hate groups, Dr. Martens have been connected to racist skinheads since the 1970s. Black Dr. Martens with white shoelaces are a symbol of "general white power," Blazak said over the phone Thursday. "The idea," he continued, "is that you graduate from white laces to red laces once you've spilled somebody's blood." Blazak said he knows Dr. Martens has been working to distance itself from the racist skinhead image and he is surprised it would allow an ad like this to be displayed, especially in Portland. "In Portland, where we're tagged as 'Skinhead City,'" he said, "it's triggering." If I was an Ethiopian person or a person of color," Blazak said, "I would say, 'that's racist Portland right there.'" The symbol has known to activists in Portland. It drew an angry response outside of Jeremy Christian's first hearing when a man who said he was Christian's friend stopped to lace up his red laces with black boots. The crowd called him a "Nazi" and "Facist Neo-Nazi" but the man said, "I'm not going to get into a debate with people. I know I'm a good person." Christian is accused of stabbing three men, leaving two of them dead and one wounded, on the MAX train in May during what witnesses said was a racist rant against two teenage black girls, one who was wearing a hijab.
