Dr Marten's were the favoured boots of the Skinhead and Bootboy movements. Dr Martens now come in many styles but the best, in my opinion, were 'cherry red' eight or ten hole. Airwair (that is eight or ten eyelets each side of the boot) occasionally could be found in eleven holes if you were lucky. The early versions were tan, but rub a tin of polish in and they soon changed to that favoured oxblood/cherry red) Dr Marten boots were best worn with coloured laces. Most popular was red or yellow, but other colours were also worn. Hawkins Astronauts were also very smart in a deep oxblood colour.
