Dr. Marten and Sanrio are about to celebrate their 50th anniversaries and to celebrate they’ve decided to collaborate on five limited edition sets of Hello Kitty footwear.
““Both SANRIO and Dr. Martens have made a global impact on fashion and culture for 50 years,” said Janet Hsu, President of SANRIO, Inc. “The timing of our collaboration couldn’t come at a more perfect time as we celebrate our anniversaries with a special, limited edition collection for our core fans. Taking inspiration from our iconic characters and blending signature elements of Dr. Martens, this collection is sure to be an instant, must-have item for collectors around the world.””
I have a set of Dr. Martens sitting on my shoe rack right now, but I think I’ll pass on these. Maybe my wife might like a pair though? I’ll have to ask!
If you’re a Hello Kitty collector, a shoe collector, or you just think these kick ass, you can place pre-orders on their site. Shipping starts on September 1st.

I like the way the low-cuts look. They look like the girl version of the Dr. Martens I have. I'm pretty sure anyone wearing these things would be a hit because of the Hello Kitty branding, but I have a feeling most of them will wind up on collector's shelves.
I think the ones in the middle are the best looking… wouldn't wear them myself but they look CRAZY and I'm a fan of the crazy looking style.
