The 1460 boot is a legend in its own right and those who rock them share in the legendary status of self-expression and authenticity.
Crazy enough before the days of the Dr. Martens 1460 as a permanent part of street fashion these boots first became a household name for workwear and gardening boots. The iconic yellow stitch and Dr. Marten’s heel loop that can be spotted a mile away didn’t appear until 1960. In 1960 that silhouette became the iconic boot fashion knows so well today. 1460 ties back to the inception date of the boot as it was born on April 1st 1960.
Born in Europe the British youth culture of the 1970’s musicians paved the way to what started the 1980’s American adoption of the boot. Not just a men’s boot the 1460 was seen in waves of smaller sizes selling to girls around the country. The 1990’s and the grunge scene stayed true to the famous 1460 Dr. Martens otherwise coined as Docs. Festival culture secured another notch to Docs many distinct subcultures. Like many brands Docs were long but forgotten until the 1990’s fashion had a renaissance of epic proportions. High fashion designers like Jimmy Choo and BAPE collaborated with Dr. Marten throwing them back in the fashion limelight. The truth is that the iconic boot gives the wearer a great sense of self expression. Whether you pair them with a perfectly fitted bodycon dress or a classic band tee and distressed flare jeans you can make your own vibe and really express yourself.
From the classic 1460 Smooth with its rugged yet refined sole, the boot serves up unparalleled comfort mixed with edgy style. The AirWair sole provides all-day comfort to the wearer, to the Molly Glitter platform that takes the bulky sole to double heights and gives you the real moment to shine with green glitter sparkle and extra-wide eyelets. The Molly Dr. Marten has shown us a fashionable yet feminine take on a classic with double height and new exciting colors and textures from Patent to Iridescent. Not to be outdone the 1460 also continues to evolve with the 1460 Pascal Iridescent and its own take on Glitter and Patent. The younger generation is not left out from the trends of the Dr. Marten boot and comes in new colorways like the 1460 Tartan, 1460 Pooch Sequin, and the 1460 Patent Lamper. Expect big things from Dr. Martens to continue in the coming season as weather turns sandal season into boot season. Whether you are walking in the city or heading out for a night with friends Docs can rock your look and add to your fashionable look.
