2020 marks six decades of Dr. Martens. To celebrate they have joined creative forces with cult favourite – Needles in an ongoing partnership inspired by vintage Americana, military and sportswear.
The collaboration taps into the world of Needles founder Keizo Shimizu, taking his lifelong enthusiasm for Dr. Martens through Japanese fashion and reinvigorating the classic 1460 boot. 1960 meets 2020 by taking the deep-set heritage of the classic boot and stamping it with a Needles signature purple track pant stripe, complete with Needles’ trademark ‘Papillon’ butterfly.
The fusion of vintage and the modern-day is reflected through an offering of three laces that arrive in black, purple and a futuristic silver tone. All together the 1460 boot is finished with its ever-present yellow and heel loop.
The Dr. Martens X Needles 1460 Boot will be available in-store and online from 22 AUG 20.
