Dr. Martens teams up with legendary Welsh Psychobilly band, Demented are Go for a punkabilly inspired boot design. Dr. Martens states “As one of the first bands to mix punk rock with rockabilly, they trailblazed the psychobilly movement and we’re unbelievably proud to be working with them.1“
The Demented are Go Pascal Boot features two album covers on a 1460 boot; Dr. Martens’ classic 8-eye boot with yellow welt and signature air cushioned sole. The albums inspiring the design include 1989 studio album “Demented Are Go Present… The Demon Teds – The Day The Earth Spat Blood” and a 1990 live release, “Go Go Demented”.

Stand for Something
This isn’t the first time Dr. Martens has team up with a Psychobilly band. As part of their #standforsomething campaign and #standfornothing films, Dr. Martens worked with Female Psychobilly band As Diabatz.
When asked to comment on the #standforsomething Campaign, Dr. Martens says:
Throughout Dr. Martens history, the brand has been adopted and subverted by countless rebellious characters, subcultures and tribes. Dr. Martens wearers bring the shoes and boots to life, and should be recognized. These are the people who stand out from the crowd in their own unique way and for many, their journey of self-expression has always been accompanied by a pair of Dr. Martens. Dr. Martens A/W-13 campaign (What Do You Stand For?) celebrates these free-thinking individuals; from the first timers to those who have been with us forever. These are authentic characters who stand for something.
With all the available styles and colours of Dr. Martens, along with the British heritage, it’s no surprise that these boots are worn by punk rockers.
Has the Psychobilly/punkabilly sub culture adopted Dr. Martens boots? I think so,
and It looks like Dr. Martens has noticed!
