Dr. Martens have been encouraging our artistic Docs community to get creative by customising their shoes and boots.

We caught up with Nico Herrera, who is a Sales Assistant at our Oxford Street store in London to see how he’s made his 1460 Mono boots his own.

Can you tell us a bit about your design?

It’s very nature inspired, very organic and you can see the gold accessories, which is pretty much what I like and always wear. 

What did you use to customise your Docs?

Markers, stencils, accessories and gems. The gems I ordered online are self-adhesive, therefore no glue was needed, which makes it a lot easier to manage them and less messy. In terms of the jewellery, I used bits I’ve had for years, which include gold-plated necklaces and bracelets.

What Docs are your current favourites?

I’d say the Jadon XL, just because every time I’ve got them on I just feel powerful - like nothing can stop me.

What do you do in your free time?

I enjoy just looking out for inspiration, anything from films, music, or photography. Anything that just lets me express myself.

What three tracks are you listening to right now?

Mostly R&B and Reggaetón, just anything with flavour on it really. I like everything really, as long as you can dance to it.
