    Hi guys,
    I've recently been wanting to change the laces on my black Doc Martins, however have been told that certain laces mean stuff.
    If anyone out there knows what different colours of laces mean, it'd be great to know so I don't end up giving people the wrong impression of me.....

    ah the only colours you want to watch out for are white or red laces. back in the day when skin heads and racist groups used to go out attacking people they either wore white laces so when you kicked someone's teeth in the blood showed or you wore red because you did it so often you dont want it to show, or at least that was how it was explained to me by this old punk I know. Hope this helps

    The importance of colour coding on Doc Martens is somewhat overstated; it would only really be significant if other people understand and Doc Martens are so popular now that such small details have become somewhat lost. Typically, white means white power, and red is often interpreted as white power as well (blood spilled for the white race). Blue is sXe. But like I said, it's not really important any more. Are you a skinhead?
