My date to the Dr Martens Belfast store launch was the stylish Ian from Rogues and Brogues. We’ve got to know each other really well in the year and half we’ve both been blogging and it was pretty funny to have many people mistake us for a couple. We were both really looking forward to the Dr Martens event, even more so when we were gifted a pair of Dr Martens shoes to wear to the event. I wore the Jessyca pair and Ian is the proud owner of the Jules shoes.
With grub supplied by Love and Death Inc, beer by Farmageddon and special guest and DJ Terri Hooley, the event was buzzing with activity. The Belfast store is looking absolutely brilliant, with an array of shoes and boots, as well as clothing and accessories for men and women. You’ll not fail to notice the impressive wall art by Northern Irish based Visual Waste, which creeps from the ground floor, up the stairs to the first floor.
As well as the traditional laced boots and shoes with the distinctive and iconic tough-wearing sole that Dr Martens is renowned for, you’ll also find a range of loafers and brogues in the new autumn/winter range. Dr Martens has been around since the 1960s with its roots firmly in punk. I love that the brand has stayed true to its roots and been able to retain a strong identity and popularity through the years.

I have my eye firmly on this Dr Martens small bowling bag. It’s a gorgeous matt black leather and feels super sturdy and good quality.
