Decades on, Keith Haring’s words still echo through his artwork and his legacy. Even those who aren’t familiar with the name are familiar with his work. His art is everywhere. From big city buildings and street murals. To art galleries and the Berlin wall. And now the 1460 boot and the 1461 shoe.
An artist who spent his life fighting for the oppressed and against convention, his work continues to make waves. In their first collaboration, Dr Martens pay tribute to an individual who lived the DM’s mindset every single day.
DM’s Original silhouettes are printed with Haring’s instantly recognisable illustrations and detailed with two bright character lace charms. The two 1461 shoes are made from Smooth leather and decorated with his staple designs. Finishing off the collaboration is a black kids 1460 boot, which is printed with his classic bat graphic and features a cartoon dog on the lace charm.
The Keith Haring Collection comprises 1460 Boot £159, 1461 Shoe £129, Junior 1460 Boot £75 and Toddler Boot £65. Click here to shop the collection.
