Martens - a story that began with an ankle injury
An interesting fact for many people may be that Dr. Martens is a brand whose history began with an ankle injury. How is this possible? The German company was founded by Klaus Martens, an avid skiing enthusiast. During one of the trips to the Alps, the doctor suffered an injury, which only got worse when wearing classic shoes reserved for representatives of the army. This is how the idea to create Martens appeared in his head - thanks to them the history of problems with the ankle never happened again. The debut model was a combination of old military footwear with accessories by Klaus Martens. We are talking of course about the special shock-absorbing lining and the solid sole, which soon became the basic elements of martens.
