Dr Martens Profits Slump as Demand Wanes

Dr Martens, the British bootmaker known for its iconic 1460 boots, has reported a slump in annual profits. The company's pretax profit fell 26% to £159.4 million ($198.04 million) for the year ended March 31.

Dr Martens blamed the profit decline on a number of factors, including waning demand in its key U.S. market and supply chain issues that ramped up operational costs. The company also said that it was facing increased competition from rivals such as Vans and Converse.

Dr Martens' shares fell 10% in early trading on the news.
