Our rugged Core collection takes its style cue from work boots and hiking touches that were favoured by renowned stylist Ray Petri back in the 1980s. These utilitarian notes are fused with a little modern fashion and a lot of Dr. Martens cool. The 7-tie Hedon??hiker shoes use ski-hooks and grey flecked lacing with Black Analine wax coated leather and Lux Nylon panelling on top of Dr. Martens??signature air cushioned sole and welting. Made in VietnamCONSTRUCTION This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together not merely glued like many footwear constructions.SOLE This sole is hard-wearing with good abrasion and slip resistance.
