Dr Martens have always stood proud with the LGBTQ+ community and their LGBTQ+ wearers around the world. This new one-off shoe pays tribute to the Pride movement with rainbow flag embroidery and a rainbow lace and heel loop, as well as multi-coloured tonal stitching through the uppers. Each year DM donate to akt, a homelessness charity which supports young people facing homelessness after coming out.
Second off the DM’s production line, the 1461 is a 3-eye shoe championed for its versatility. Hardwearing and famously tough, the smooth leather can be polished to a shine or scuffed-up – it’s up to you. Clean with a damp cloth and care with Dr. Martens Shoe Polish. The iconic Goodyear-welted lines are heat-sealed at 700°C and reinforced with Docs signature welt stitch.
Five decades on, Pride remains as important as ever, and this year Dr Martens donated over £90,000 to various LGBTQIA+ causes around the world. In Europe DM supports charities such as akt, Jugend Gegen Aids and Le Refug.
