During World War II, a young German doctor named Klaus Marten hurt his ankle while skiing. Later he felt that his boots were quite uncomfortable for his injured foot. He made a few modifications in his boots with the help of leather and tires. The shoes turned out to be very convenient. Marten then bought leather from a cobbler, designed shoes with air-padded soles (the famous bouncing soles). He was not very successful in selling shoes until 1947 when he partnered up with his friend Dr. Herbert Funck in Munich.

Their shoes got so popular that they had to open a factory. In 1959, a British shoes manufacturer R. Griggs Group Ltd bought the rights to manufacture the Dr. Martens shoes. In 1960, first Dr. Martens shoes came out with a better air cushioned soles which were trademarked Airway and an additional trademark as yellow stitching. They were an immediate hit among everyone.postmen, factory workers, skinheads, teens and even housewives. Not long after they became the most worn and iconic fashion item.
