Based on a vintage style found in the Dr. Martens archive this boot borrows from sturdy hiking gear and calls on Ray Petri's Buffalo style of the 1980s. The idea is simple mash up styles and break the rule book. Think angled padding on the collar double-facings around the D-rings branded side tabs and Capper-style lettering on the ankle. Made in ThailandCONSTRUCTION This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together not merely glued like many footwear constructions.MATERIAL Vintage Smooth is a retro version of our signature smooth leather with subtle grained effect and contrast base colour.CARE INSTRUCTIONS Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth allow to dry apply a clear wax based shoe polish to restore shine as desired.
