The new Dr. Martens flagship store is punk as hell

The new Dr. Martens flagship store is punk as hell

Take your pick from a wide variety of Docs, all lined up on a fancy display wall in different colorways and prints.

My earliest memory of Dr. Martens’ was of a picture of the 1490 boot on my second-hand copy of The Princess Diaries. Black and clunky, the shoes weren’t what I expected to see on the back of a hot pink book (with a tiara on the cover and the word “princess” in the title, no less).

Mia Thermopolis — the five foot nine, flat-chested, FUR-REEK protagonist of the novel was my introduction to counterculture. From then on, I associated Dr. Martens with coolness and rebellion. Docs are iconic shoes in counterculture — comfortable, durable, and lightweight, they’re the go-to for anyone who wants to be effortlessly edgy.

Sporting smooth leather, grooved sides, yellow stitching, and an air-cushioned sole, there’s no doubt that a pair of Docs will last you a long time. The downside, though, is that they don’t come cheap. After saving up, it’s only fair to want to burn that cash on a style you’d love forever and ever. At the newly reopened Dr. Martens flagship store at Two Parkade BGC, you can take your pick from a wide variety of Docs, all lined up on a fancy display wall in different colorways and prints.

You’ll see the Original Icons like the iconic classic 1460 boot and the art hoe low-cut 1461 shoe. Plus the 39839 brogue, the 2976 Chelsea boot, the platform Jadon boot, and the latest collection of DM Sandals. Try on one (or all, no shame) style in the store — which is the only local one that’s situated outside of a mall (how punk can you get, right?) — and experience the feel of some of the newer Dr. Martens stores in Europe and the US.

 

The Dr. Martens flagship store is located at Two Parkade, BGC. For more information and a list of other branches, visit their Facebook and Instagram.
