Until recently, skinheads could be identified by their colored
shoelaces and Doc Martens boots, often made with steel tips and
used as "weapons" to kick people in fights. Although many
skinheads wear other kinds of shoes, this brand of boots, popularized
several years ago, is still the most typical and traditional. The
term "boot party" was coined to refer to a gathering at
which skinheads usually commit acts of violence together.
