Dr. Martens, the iconic British shoe company, will soon open a retail store at 103 Smith Street in Boerum Hill near Atlantic Avenue.  According to its web site, "Dr. Martens’ appeal to people who have their own individual style but share a united spirit – authentic characters who stand for something. People who possess a proud sense of self- expression. People who are different."

In recent years, the company has opened several shops in New York City, including another Brooklyn store on Bedford Avenue.  According to a real estate listing from Agorafy, the 845 sq. ft. storefront was offered at $10,563 a month.

So, what do you think, dear Readers?  Glad to see this latest addition to the neighborhood? If 'yes', why? If 'no', why?

I haven't worn Docs since 1992, but it's a non-offensive brand which will fit into the neighborhood. By the way, the ladies working at the radiology office in the old Met tell me that a Home Goods store is moving in to the rest of the Met space on Smith St.

doc martens is fine. it's not mind-blowing news but if they are hire locally, then i think it's a plus, especially if they'd support the establishment of a shanghainese soup dumpling restaurant somewhere in the neighborhood. reputation-wise, doc martens has long transcended their post-world war II german origins and later support of skinheads - so many different types of people wear their shoes and i remember them fondly from the 1990s... the company is now owned by the same private equity firm that also owns hugo boss.

Home goods? That's unfortunate.
