Online PR News – 24-March-2010 – – Durham, United Kingdom (March 19, 2010) - Scorpio Shoes, a designer footwear store which has been voted best independent shoe store in the North of England by The Guardian, are looking forward to celebrating the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martens shoes in April, 2010.

Dr. Martens started boot production in the 1960 and quickly became a staunch identifier for youth culture across the United Kingdom and a sign of teenage rebellion. Adopted by subcultures such as Mods, Glam, Punk, Psychobillies, Skinheads, Ska, Grebos, Goths, Grunge, Nu-metal and Britpop, Dr. Martens have always had a cult following and have evolved over the years to supply a more individual form of shoe, whilst keeping a firm hold on its anarchist roots.

Scorpio Shoes have been there alongside Dr. Martens from the past to the present, and have a huge collection of Dr. Martens shoes available in stock alongside other designer footwear. Scorpio Shoes are keen to celebrate Dr. Martens' fiftieth anniversary and will be selling a limited quantity of 1460 ankle boots and 1461 shoes. Each shoe will be made to the highest quality and will have a special gold leaf inside. Scorpio Shoes have secured a limited number to sell and each pair is individually numbered, coming with its own certificate of authenticity.

"Though we love all of the designer footwear we sell at Scorpio Shoes, we hold Dr. Martens in particularly high regard and, quite honestly, can't believe that fifty years has passed by so quickly," says Steve Tregoning of Scorpio Shoes. "So much history has come and gone in that time and Dr. Martens has been keenly woven alongside it, throughout all the highs and the lows. Their footwear is enduring and, to celebrate, we have other events planned alongside offering these commemorative boots. We will have a number of Dr. Martens-themed promotions running throughout April and are looking for everybody to get involved through our Facebook and Twitter pages."
