Soo...hate to be so sheltered but Im not a racist therefore know nothing much bout the culture being presented to my face. I own red doc martin boots. I love them! I was aware that with certain laces in certain states it means your a skin/aryan or your a non racist . What else does it mean. can anyone clarify for me in full. My docs have 12 eyelets so pretty high and have red and black checkered laces I got from wal mart!

White laces means racist?
or is it black laces?
Red boots?
black boots?

I know its pridominently a cali, michigan thing, but here I am in Texas and someone was commenting, I had no clue what he meant
was like "red blood blah blah blah blah"

Yes there is a difference. I forget which is which, but the Nazi skinheads(racist) beef with a different kinda skinhead group(not only nonracist, but totally agianst racism). It's hard to tell the difference though, as they all wear the same kinda clothes and such. And yes, Doc Martins are part of the attire. They listen to the same kinda music and everything. I wanna say the non racist ones are called Antis or something like that.

I think the red laces are for the Nazis, but I'm not sure.

well to start off black lances mean nothing, all skins ,well the neo nazi skins atleast, follow a basic code White= White power/White Pride/Skinhead,Purple= frsh cut a newbee, red=you have have either bleed for the race war, or have made others bleed, its more common for them to to shed blood of others, and it is a sign of great disrespect to wear this color with out haveing hurned it, but its hard to tell whos lieing or not, but i have seen a few boot partys due to fake colors, and on the color of the boots , i like the black 14 eyes, but the red ones are liked very much has well, o yes alot of skins like military surplus rather then doc martins, they last longer.hope that answers your qustion

I always thought the Doc Martins and red laces got associated with Punk Rockers or anarchists who are dangerous opposites to neo Nazis in any form.

Whatever you do. Don't let the Crips see you with them red boots and red laces.

Ok, this is a bit late seeing as the last post was April 3rd...
its_ok: "i guess i ll have to buy um green laces!?"
(Sorry, can't be bothered figuring out how to quote...)
Green laces mean you hate the police.
Black is neutral, or goth.
Yellow means you're gay.
Purple means you're new.
White is usually Nazi.
Red usually means punk, but it can also mean you've spilled blood.
I have two pairs of Docs, the first are 14-eyelets with black laces, although the first and third eyelets have 6 cm metal studs poking out of them...
The teachers love it.
My second pair are about as old as yours, and in pretty terrible condition, only 8-eyelets with really long green laces... so go the green laces!
Oh yeah, black laces are usually the only acceptable coloured laces in the metaller and goth communities, but I say who gives a fuck, I listen to punk and metal and hang out with both crowds.
Hope that helped.:-)
