Rick Owens and Dr. Martens launch a grunge 1460 Bex
In his first collab with Dr. Martens, Rick Owens brings his punk days back. The designer has a nostalgic relationship with the brand — the high-heeled leather boots of a teenager building his personality — which made this work personal and authentic.
They chose the 1460 Bex platform sole boot, with a chunky hardcore inspiration usual from Owen’s designs. It’s a classic DM’s silhouette in black smooth leather, but the dark-glam aesthetic shows his strength in the details, like the two long black&white laces tied in a geometric way.
The Owens x DM 1460 Bex started selling on March 20th for £299 and has already sold out. This launch comes at a time when people's preferences are for durable, comfortable, and bold shoes. Consumers are giving up the quick hype by choosing timeless and long-lasting options. Which piece could bring these together? Bold leather boots.
And what would be more durable than a Dr. Martens, or more striking than Rick Owens?
More Rick Owens boots never hurts.
