Dr. Martens and A-COLD-WALL redesign the 1461 silhouette.
Dr. Martens and A-COLD-WALL have already teamed up before, resulting in an aesthetic that reflects both brands’ wish to become part of any city.
After the first take on the 1460 Remastered series, it’s time for the British label’s classic 1461 shoe, first released in 1961, to be redesigned from Samuel Ross’ point of view.
The pair has been recast to represent Dr. Martens’ legacy combined with A-COLD-WALL's design vision when it comes to utilitarian releases.
1461 was originally designed as a resilient leather shoe that could help people to overcome the common challenges of daily physical work. After being transformed into an object of desire by the youth, Dr. Martens has become a reference on long-lasting yet super appealing goods.
A-COLD-WALL* Dr. Martens 1461 then provides the same qualities, now influenced by Ross’ own upbringing, which carries a twist of modernist architecture and the atmosphere of the British working class.
In addition to the graphite leather chosen for the collab, a debossed ACW hit on the lateral heel sums up all of the concepts, especially when combined with lateral panels.
This way, it gets easier to have the structure needed for shoes that are made for walking on city streets — the same goes for the Smoke Bex sole which Dr. Martens is recognized for.
Having functionality above all other things, 1461 fresh silhouette replaces the laces for a zip closure system down the shoe’s throat. Enthusiasts can expect the shoes to be released on September 4, and they can also subscribe for further information on price and availability on Dr. Marten’s website.
