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.
The 1460 is the original Dr. Martens boot. The unisex boot's recognizable DNA looks like this: 8 eyes, grooved sides, a heel-loop, yellow stitching, and a comfortable, air-cushioned sole. The boot sits on iconic AirWair™ sole, which is oil and fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance, and is made with Arcadia, a two tone rub-off leather designed to tarnish with wear, revealing a base color underneath.
