Dr Martens Made In England Vintage 1461 - Black Quilton
Dr. Martens Made in England Vintage collection continues to be made in the original Wellingborough, factory. The cobblers use the original construction techniques to create this 3-Eyelet 1461 Shoe in Quilon Leather, a re-issue of the original Dr Martens classic leather. The leather is durable, with a smooth finish and is made on the classic 59 Last: offering our most classic fit.
This is a Goodyear-welted product meaning the upper and sole are sewn together not merely glued together like many footwear construction. The Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole is oil and fat-resistant, offers good abrasion and slip resistance and small visible indentations left on the welt by the original stitching machine making these shoes unique to Dr. Martens.

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
