doc marten is 50

happy birthday to you….

happy birthday to you…

happy birthday doc!

….50 yrs and it still feels like walking on airy clouds

my first pair were 12 hole black steel toes

kitty's baby boots

……..from cops  and postal workers to labourers and factory workers, to punks skins and the alternative crowd………and now they’re so main stream you may see my mum wearing them.

….well not my mum…but someones mum.

doc marten aka DM’s is celebrating it’s 50 years by asking 10 artists to record their version of a cult classic track which represents the spirit of the people who’ve worn DM’s over the past 50 years.

the first three came out today.

Noisetts cover ‘ ever fallen in love with someone you should’ve

and the duke spirit‘s rendition of  ‘if the kids are united‘ by sham 69 is A-okay  for my dancing…boots

….i’m excited to hear  neneh cherry’s  buffalo stance remake due out on may buraka som sistema

thanks for the footwear doc…..congrats and happy 50 years.
