The 1460 turns 60 this year and to celebrate Dr. Martens are partnering with 12 world-renowned labels, brands and designers. It is the turn of Raf Simons to re-imagine the iconic original 1460 boot.
Dr. Martens’ relationship with Raf Simons has spanned more than a decade. Both are heavily influenced by music, art and youth subcultures. Simons has covered Dr. Martens’ Smooth leather upper with a series of anarchistic punk-style nickel rings. Alongside being inspired by the customisation trend during the new romantic/punk club scene of the late ‘70s, the placement of the rings is also a nod to the structure of a mid-century piece – a homage to Raf Simons’ background in detail-driven furniture design. A Dual-branded logo is embossed on the boot’s ankle cuff to add a finishing detail.
