Dr. Martens is the stuff of legends. It all began near Munich, Germany in 1945 when Dr. Klaus Maertens injured his foot in a skiing accident in the Bavarian Alps. To make walking easier during the healing process, he designed a shoe with an air-cushioned sole. Using old rubber tires, he constructed soles that had air trapped within closed compartments. He showed his prototype to his engineer/inventor friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, and together they decided to develop and produce the shoes. Not only did the shoe solve the doctor's immediate problem, but it also started to sell well in Germany. By 1959 the two decided that they needed a company to produce and distribute the shoes, then called Dr. Maertens, in other parts of the world. At first, many manufacturers rejected the concept of an air cushioned sole as a short-lived gimmick. However, the R. Griggs Group, located in the village of Wollaston in England, decided to go along with the idea by creating the first work boot with the revolutionary sole. On the first of April 1960, the first cherry red eight-eyelet work boot was produced and named 1460. To sell the brand name better in England, the name was anglicized to Dr. Martens. The range was branded AirWair and the rest is history.
The Vintage Rose Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye Boot is this season's take on our world-renowned floral prints. With this women's boots traditional, vintage-inspired designs, it offers a distinctly feminine, soft spin on the classic 8-eye boot. The upper and sole are sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This, together with a Z welt-stitch and heat-sealing process, makes it unique to Dr. Martens. The original Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole provides underfoot comfort and durability since 1960. It is oil- and fat-resistant, tough and offers good abrasion and slip resistance. Both feminine and tough, the Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye Boot will see you through your day in style and comfort.
