The BRITISH BOOT COMPANY Ltd is a shoe shop in Camden Town in London, famous for being the first shop in the world to sell Dr. Martens.
Over the last few decades most brands and competitors moved their production to the Far East to save money. Meanwhile we remained committed to our focus on English made quality footwear made by trusted factories and family businesses we have been working with since the start.
With over 400 styles of Dr. Martens, Solovairs, Grinders, Loakes, original George Cox Creepers, etc, we have an unrivaled collection of boots, shoes and creepers. Many of the styles we carry are hand made here in the UK for our shop only.
Ever since the 70s we have had lots of famous bands and artists shopping with us. In the last few years we have seen a new generation of musicians, celebrities and models coming into our shop alongside our much valued regulars. We also notice how Vogue and other fashion houses are contacting us more than ever. We will not bore you with name dropping but we are pleased to acknowledge that our products are more in demand than ever. Browse around our online shop or come and see us in Camden, we look forward to seeing you.
