If you've been holding out for a new pair of Dr. Martens, the time has come!

This week, the famous shoe brand announced that on November 21st, they'll be opening their first ever retail store in New Zealand. 

Based in Newmarket's new Westfield, the store will feature the largest range of styles available in New Zealand including 'Originals, Made in England, full vegan ranges, global collaborations, and accessories collections'.

Speaking of the stores opening, Dr. Martens' Matt Hapgood said "Dr. Martens creates distinctive footwear built and adopted by generations of rebellious individuals not afraid to stand out from the crowd."

"Our arrival in NZ is very exciting and will allows us to connect with our loyal Kiwi Docs fans and provide them with a premium Dr. Martens shopping experience."

Earlier this year, it was announced that Dr. Martens profits had increased by 70 percent in the year to the end of March 2019.

The rise was thanks partly to the success of its new vegan range of boots. In the range, the traditional leather upper is replaced with synthetic polyurethane plastic, making the boots a popular choice amongst environmentally-conscious wearers and the brand's loyal fanbase.
