Ever since they were wrestled from the factory floor onto the feet of the early skinhead movement in the 1960s, Dr. Martens footwear has been inexorably linked with popular youth culture. Adopted by generation after generation of music and fashion fans, the brand still produce their shoes to their original hard-wearing and forward-thinking philosophy.
For Autumn/Winter 2011/12, the brand has produced this limited edition of their iconic 1461 style. An enduring classic, this version is updated through the use of soft and textured, ›hair on‹ Ox-hide. Sourced from the Vincenza Pelli tannery in Italy, this fine leather producer also supplies some of the biggest names in the luxury leather business such as Hermès and Yves Saint Laurent.
The derby shoe features the ever-present, original Dr. Martens bouncing sole and a thick, protective plain rubber welt. Fully-lined in soft leather and finished with a matching black lace, they are a comfortable and durable combination of function and style.
