What we now call the style of the punks was mainly shaped by the band Sex Pistols. Rivets, tight skinny jeans, Union Jacks, stripes and checks, colorful hair and leather jackets make clear statements and have been identifying marks for punks since the late 70s.
At that time, Malcolm McLaren and his girlfriend Vivienne Westwood ran the shop 'Let it Rock' in London and together they shaped the style of the subculture scene, and later he became the manager of the Sex Pistols. The Sex Pistols themselves did not call themselves punks - their attitude, scandals and philosophy of life were informative enough even without a label! The shoes that accompanied almost all subversive youth movements of that time were Dr. Martens and so it is not surprising that a Sex Pistols Limited Edition was launched again for the 60th birthday of 1460. The 8-hole cult boot 1460 made of black smooth leather was printed with 'God save the Queen' for this purpose, on the back of the heels are the Sex Pistols logo and 'Anarchy' in bright red. The white leather of the 1461 3-hole shoe is printed all over with newspaper articles. After all, the legendary interview of presenter Bill Grundy and Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols got so through the media that they became famous almost overnight and the desire for rebellion in young people intensified. Something that Dr. Martens is still standing today and the pick-up anyway!
