Today I dropped into the Dr Martens store in Belfast,it's been open for a few months now but I had never been untill today,I had no idea such a gem was just around the corner. 
 I instantly fell in love. This two floor store is a haven for Dr Marten lovers. I had no idea there were so many styles,and the S/S piceces really caught my eye,loads of floral prints and cut out brogues. 

The bags were by far my favorite picks from today's visit,structured and body with metallic trim. This was my fave,it's so not my usual style but I think that's what I loved the most about it. 

The first Dr. Martens boots in the United Kingdom came out on the 1st of April 1960 (known as style 1460 and still in production today), with an eight-eyelet oxblood colored smooth leather design. Dr. Martens boots were made in their Cobbs Lane factory in Wollaston,Northamptonshire. (which is still operating today)

The boots were popular among workers such as portmen,police officers and factory workers. By the early 1970s,skinheads started wearing them, and by the late 1980s, they were popular among mods,punks,some new wave musicians.

Now they are worn by anyone and everyone,all over the world and all over Belfast. 

The classic 1960 boot is so versatile it's the perfect winter boot while also being a timeless 

festival staple. 

I made a quick vid,so if you want a good look around,check it out!
