No piece of clothing is inherently "punk." It's all about context, the total package and what you've got going for you besides clothes that makes you punk. If the only thing punk about you are clothes then you're a poser.

For some reason I always associate Doc. Martens with skinheads as well.

You are not punk. Doc Martens are fag. In fact, you made them lame by asking! WHATS WRONG WITH YOU AND THE WORLD! YOU AN YOUR FASHION ORIENTED IDIOTS HAVE DESTROYED EVERYTHING! If you want punk, get a leather jacket, spike your hair, and get the shit beat out of you in a mosh pit. Then smoke a blunt with the folks you got beat with, because they're punk. And when the cops are called for you guys partying too hard, run like hell and if you're caught, resist! thats how you become punk idiot. its a lifestyle! Shoes, well, theres a song about those on this video describing how to not be punk . Go suck on it kid.

Wasn't punk supposed to be the anti-thesis of everything, so that's why the original godfathers of punk dressed in such bizarre clothing, to emphasize their own individual uniqueness?

I can't image they would be too happy that "punk" nowadays has its own generic style of shoes.

This and what Timmy said.

It's Punk if you say it is. Anyone else's opinion doesn't matter, and if it does, you aren't Punk anyway.

DM's were always pretty big in the UK punk and skinhead scene. I have a pair myself that I wear now and again. They are pretty light weight and comfortable to wear, so I'm not complaining.
