Do you think that wellies, sturdy boots and sporty sneakers belong in the countryside? Think again! These days it’s not uncommon to spot Hunter boots and the like worn by city dwellers. And we can expect to see a lot more of them pounding the pavements of Berlin’s City West because Boots & Shoes are setting up shop at Bikini Berlin to bring shoes by the brands Hunter, Dr. Martens and Converse to the west of Berlin.
The three brands that Boots & Shoes have decided to concentrate on all have one thing in common – they are comfortable and fashionable at the same time. Originally intended for men’s feet only, they are meanwhile all equally as popular with women.
Hunter are renowned for their extravagant rubber boots that not only look the part when out hunting. Dr. Martens boots, known as Docs for short, have meanwhile achieved cult status and are no longer reserved for just the punk scene. And Converse sneakers are among the most popular of all time – over 600 million pairs of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star have been sold to this day.
