Dr. Martens have partnered with Nickelodeon to create a collection based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Inspired by the original 1987 television series, this collection consists of four styles available in all sizes for Men, Women and Kids.
Coinciding with the launch of the new movie, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’, the new Dr. Martens collection follows the iconic footwear brand’s ‘Adventure Time’ collection which was such a hit last year.
Some of you might remember the original TV series that was such a massive favourite amongst 80s kids. Rising from the sewers, the four pizza-loving, martial-artist brothers, ‘the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, were a cult hit after just one comic, and exploded around the world to become one of the most popular children’s cartoons of all-time.
Of course the classic Dr. Martens silhouette is unmistakable, with its simple shape customized to throughout its history to allow its wearers to stand-out from the crowd and standup for their own subculture. So the choice of cult characters like the turtles is a perfect, fun and fantastical fit.
Not for those who like to hide amongst the masses, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles boots come in turtle shades of green and yellow, with turtle scales and masks. There’s a style for each turtle – Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo, with turtle symbols from pizza to the turtles favourite phrase, ‘Cowabunga!’. The Raphael and Leonardo boots even had glow in the dark ooze dripping down the side or splatteded on the side, perfect for the disco.
A lot of fun to be had with this collection, for old and new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans alike as well as Dr. Martens fanatics.
