UNIFORM | Dr. Martens

In the mid 1990s, everyone in my school had a pair of Docs. Boys, girls, nerds, jocks, everyone. Looking back, I think most of my preppy-suburban cohort would agree that the iconic work boot-made-stylish by London punks looked about as natural on us as Napalm (but we totally felt hardcore at the time).

In 2007, I wrote this piece for the L.A. Times observing the (now 51-year-old) shoe resurfacing on runways. Four years later, I'm seeing Dr. Martens retailing at Madewell, Asos and Nordstom. Have you ever worn Doc Martens? Would you wear them again?
