This is the monochromatic Newton: an iconic Dr. Martens style for a new generation. All the essential DNA from our 8-eye silhouette remains, like welt stitching, grooved sides, and heel-loop. But the Newton is an evolution, with a modern, sleek silhouette — minus a third of the weight.
The Newton 8-eye unisex boot is made with our DM's Lite technology: a lightweight, Phylon midsole with a slimline rubber outsole with good abrasion and slip resistance. The boot contains a wicking SoftWair™ insole, keeping the foot dry and providing maximum comfort, and is made with Temperley, a lightweight, full-grain leather with a soft feel.
Material: Lightweight, full-grain leather, with a soft feel.
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.
