Dr. Martens and moi

20 years ago my parents travelled to London. I remember that even when I heard them planning this trip I knew exactly what will appear on the top of my shopping list: Dr. Martens shoes!
It was a rusty brown pair of Dr. Martens that were made and bought in London but raised with me here in Israel.
When I was invited to the new Dr. Martens store on Carnaby st. I had a moment of Deja vu and relived this moment all over again…
I thought it would be very interesting to discover how this traditional, classic brand; my rusty brown pair’s parents, adjust to the new age.
When I arrived to the new store on Carnaby Street on a beautiful sunny day I was absolutely shocked! It was the coolest flagship store, set over 2 floors, which combined a traditional British personality and a very bubbly and fun atmosphere.
The first floor was all about the unlimited boots and shoes designs which include patent, studded, velvet, floral-prints and even high-heeled Docs next to Agyness Deyn’s latest brilliant (!) collection.
On the second floor I found a Made in England zone, that offers shoes made at the original Northampton factory, and a design your own Dr. Martens section.
I tried on boots, shoes, sandals, bags and clothes and didn’t know what to choose, after a while I decided to go for the candy pink sandals and the eyeball bag which I absolutely couldn’t resist!
You can find Dr. Martens in the ‘Originals’ stores in Israel (Tel Aviv and various other cities) and if you visit in London, make sure you check out the Carnaby street store (48 Carnaby Street London) and for a little Dr. Martens history, check out this video.
