Dr Martens Women's Velvet Shoes
Add a touch of luxury to your shoe collection with a pair of Dr Martens women's velvet shoes. Dr Martens shoes have always been known for their durability and comfort, combined with their fashionable finish.
The Dr Martens brand was launched in the UK in 1961 and, although their design was initially sold and bought as a hard-wearing workwear boot, their footwear has, in the years since, become a cultural icon and is closely linked to music festivals and the music industry.
Dr Martens footwear was not originally designed for women but, with a significant number of small-sized boots being sold, it was realised that women were buying them and customising them to their personal tastes. It made sense to begin designing shoes specifically for women!
Dr Martens as a brand has been revitalised in the 21st century with handmade 'originals' again being manufactured in Northampton.
Velvet uppers take Dr Martens women's shoes into another realm. Velvet is a soft, luxurious fabric which probably originated in the Far East before reaching Europe, via the Middle East, in the fourteenth century. Modern manufacturing methods and fibres have reduced production costs which means that velvet is now available to all, but it still retains its luxurious aura.
