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.
This is the Persephone, a 6-eye padded collar boot. Extra height and street cred come in the form of a chunky high heel, padded collar and thick, ridged air cushioned sole—inspired by heavy duty hiking boots. Made with Buttero Leather, a soft, full-grain, supple leather with a soft sheen. Heel height is 3 1/2" and 1" platform.
Full-grain, smooth leather, with a satin gloss and luxurious supple feel.
Clean away dirt using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr.Martens clear or coloured wax polish as appropriate, using a Dr.Martens shoe brush, (Neutral can be applied to all colours). Allow to dry, then buff vigorously to desired shine using a second clean Dr.Martens shoe brush. (We advise to use 2 brushes per colour, one to add the polish and the second, clean dry brush, to buff up the leather for the best results).
