SKINHEADS LOVE BOOTS, BUT NOT NECESSARILY WHITE POWER.


Truthfully, it’s really just a handful of racist, religious bashing, bad apples that ruined it for the rest of the SKINHEAD population. Skinheads actually first appeared in the UK (in the 1960s) as a peace-loving group that followed ska and soul bands. This whole Neo-Nazi / white supremacist thing didn’t come into play ‘til the late 70s. Unfortunately this uber-evil Skinhead sect gained tremendous popularity. 

Even in ‘87, when visionary / Skinhead Marcus Pacheco formed SHARP (Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice), it did little to stop this monster movement. Since then both Skinhead groups have been in strong opposition of each other for 20 plus years. EXCEPT, when it comes to one subject – BOOTS. Both camps agree that in order to look your Skinhead best, you need a powerful, ass kicking, foot stomping boots. Here are the top two faves of both groups.

Made from tough leather with the classic Dr. Martens grooved sole pattern.

  1. Good to know that they can agree on something. I think I might invest in the Dr. Martens and then take on of those racist bastards, bend him over, and insert my 8 1/2 right up his ass! By the way, I come from that redneck population that handles business and then goes fishing.

  2. I continue to purchase DM on Zappos. I own like three pairs. Sadly I can't wear the boots, they look funny when you don't have skinny calves. I love Fred Perry shirts too - which is what the skinhead in blue is wearing :) You should rent Romper Stomper. I don't remember much about it I saw it years ago.

  11. Skinhead has always been violent, skinhead was never a peace loving music. True skinhead did not start off with the 88 Hitler bullshit, but let's not mistake the reason skinheads wear boots
