Dr Martens Made In England Arthur Boot - Black Boanil Brush
Klaus Märtens was a doctor in the German army during World War II. While on leave in 1945, he injured his ankle while skiing in the Bavarian Alps. He found that his standard-issue army boots were too uncomfortable on his injured foot. While recuperating, he designed improvements to the boots, with soft leather and air-padded soles made of tyres. When the war ended and some Germans recovered valuables from their own cities, Märtens took leather from a cobbler's shop. With that leather he made himself a pair of boots with air-cushioned soles.
The simple silhouette of the classic Dr. Martens 3-Eye Shoe and 6-Eye Boot use a high shine, superior quality Portuguese Boanil Brush leather.This rub-off leather has a natural backing with the appearance of a more traditional non-dyed leather. Traditional colours of Tan, Merlot and Black reinforce the heritage feel.
All are made in Dr. Martens’ original Northamptonshire factory by hand, including hand-polishing. The styles use a slim last and plain PVC welt.
