In Gary Baseman's universe, a macabre-yet-cute aesthetic brings a bittersweet vibe to illustration, paintings and performance pieces-even to “Teacher's Pet”, his BAFTA-award winning animated show for ABC/Disney. It's a distinctive and unmatched-much like a pair of Doc Martens boots. Which is why the iconic 1461 men's shoe is a perfect canvas for a Baseman x Dr. Martens collaboration. The shoe features HotChaChaCha, a devilish recurring character in Baseman's work. Influenced by Bosch's Garden of Unearthly Delights, the shoe's print is a representation of the pleasure principle and the inner demon at work inside all of us. It's literally as cool as hell-and a great way to honor your inner pop art fanboy or fangirl. Selections from Baseman's designs are digitally printed onto Backhand leather. There's no binding on the collars. It's got our simple yellow welt stitch, which ensures the main focus in on the artwork. The Baseman shoe has our iconic AirWair bouncing sole, that's oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance-and has been since 1961. Finally, this shoe is Goodyear-welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. Bonus: Each pair of shoes will come in a limited-edition Gary Baseman artwork box.
