You may not have heard of Solovair, but you’ve definitely seen them, and maybe even worn them! From 1960 to 1995, Solovair manufactured Dr. Martens under the title “Dr. Martens by Solovair” (sole-of-air, get it?). Today, Solovair produces high quality shoes and boots using the same lasts and machinery that were used to make the original Docs in 1960. Every pair is still made in the original factory in England, and we think that dollar-for-dollar they might be the best value on the market.

Solovair FW23 Collection

For FW23 we brought in a short but very sweet collection from Solovair. As per usual, we have the 3 Eye Gibson and 8 Eye Derby Boot in black hi-shine because, well, they’re perfect. The one change up is the Dealer Boot, a Chelsea-style boot with that wonderful not-too-slim-not-too-chunky Solovair silhouette. Every Solovair model is handmade in England and Goodyear welted, so you can be sure the quality is top notch.

Solovair: Heritage, Craftsmanship, and a Whole Lot of Style

From 1960 to 1995, Solovair was the manufacturer behind Dr. Martens, as Docs became the go-to footwear for countercultures around the world. From mods, rude boys, and first-wave skinheads in the 60’s, to punks and goths in the 70’s and 80’s, all the way up to grunge in the 90’s, Docs were an irreplaceable part of the rebel uniform. While the initial appeal was their chunky, take-no-shit look, Dr. Martens retained legions of loyal fans because of their quality. That supreme durability was thanks to Solovair’s manufacturing.
