History of Dr. Martens shoes starts more than 100 years ago , but the first true iconic boot emerged in 1960. A distinctive yellow welt stitch, a two tone grooved sole edge and a unique sole pattern were nothing else, but well known 1460 boot. Launched as a functional work-boot in a short amount of time it became a fashion and cultural statement, symbol of rebellion and social revolution.
A new leather for an old classic: this iconic 8-eye 1460 boot is made with Crazy Horse, a solid leather with a worn, distressed look.
This unisex boot is made with all the classic Doc's DNA, including grooved sides, heel-loop and yellow stitching. Built to last, it's made using one of the finest methods of construction: the Goodyear Welt — which means the upper and sole are sewn together in heat-sealed z-welt stitch. The boot sits on iconic AirWair™ sole, which is oil and fat resistant, with good abrasion and slip resistance.
Natural-type oil finished leather, with a worn, distressed appearance.
