The Adrian Tassle Loafer first hit the scene in 1980, manufactured at the original Dr. Martens Lane factory—and has been cutting a wide swath of fashion across genres and cultures since then. From office workers to teenage street style, the Adrian remains a classic. This time around, we reinvented the Adrian’s traditional rude boy look with water-resistant hi-suede paneling, complimented by rich, supple Brando leather. White socks not included. This Adrian shoe has our iconic AirWair Bouncing Soles, that are oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance—and have been since 1960.It has all the DNA of a classic Doc—it’s Goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. Brando is a full-grain, waxy leather that distresses with age, while our Hi Suede is a traditional lightweight suede that’s also water-resistant.
