The Dr. Martens Hardy is a slick, uncompromisingly fashion-forward Chelsea boot for both men and women. With a sure fit and an easy-on, easy-off elasticized ankle, it's a versatile boot that works with everything. And this season, it comes in two shades of Orleans, a rich, waxy leather.
The boot still serves up tons of Doc's DNA, like grooved edges, yellow stitching and a scripted heel-loop. 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 our heat-sealed z-welt stitch. Finally, the Hardy sits on our durable, comfortable AirWair™ sole, that's oil and fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance.
Construction: This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
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.
