Once upon a time, you could pick up a pair of Dr. Martens for little more than £2. A workman’s boot reserved for postmen, factory workers and the general laboring class of the UK, only football hooligans and shaven-headed youths found comfort in their jet black leather design. Then a guitarist by the name of Pete Townshend rocked a pair in 1969 in defiance of the psychedelic fashion of the era. And just like that, everyone wanted their hands on this now-iconic boot.

Though the styles have evolved and the colors have too (did someone say yellow boots?), there’s something to be said about a pair of 1460 Dr. Martens. To celebrate 60 years in business, these vegan leather Martens were made in the original Wollaston factory from all-natural materials. The leather is designed to patina over the years, and the heel is finished with the iconic gold-scripted loop. They cost a little more than £2, but you can still get your hands on a pair for 40% off while supplies last.
