These remind me of the style of boots I wore sometimes while in the US Navy. LOX boots.

Dr. Martens legendary boots and shoes
Introduction
There is a first time for everything and for many people their first pair of Dr. Martens is a memorable moment in time, an opening statement of self-expression and creativity. Over the past 50 years Dr. Martens boots and shoes haven’t changed - the original styles are still simple, versatile, functional
and stylish all at the same time.

Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole, designed by German inventor, Dr. Klaus Maertens, was engineered primarily to meet the specific need of  providing additional support and comfort for his broken foot.

The Dr. Martens boot, manufactured by R Griggs and Co, British boot makers, with its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heel-loop, was a boot for workers; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to its competitors at the time.

Initially worn by postmen, policemen and everyday workers, the boots were adopted, customised and used as a tribal emblem by successive subcultures, decade after decade each twisting and subverting the boot and shoes to meet their own individual identity.

A specific range of “Made In England” products are still manufactured in the Cobbs Lane factory, Wollaston, England which has been making footwear for the Griggs family since 1901. It is the home of the original Dr. Martens boot and within this small factory works a close knit team of people schooled in traditional shoe making and the unique process that makes Dr. Martens like no other shoe on earth.

This is the factory where it all began; where the first pair of Dr. Martens boots rolled off the production line on April 1st 1960. The manufacturing process has been fine tuned and perfected ever since - from the cutting of the leather hides to the heat-sealing with a blade of fire that welds the air cushioned sole to the upper.
