The 8-eye Whiton unisex boot is a slimmed-down, contemporary re-imagination of the classic Dr. Martens 1460 silhouette. Cutting edge modern style comes in the form of a subtle wedge cut—and cutting edge comfort comes in the form of a SoftWair technology insole and an uber-lightweight sole. This Whiton 8-eye boot is made with a traditional, lightweight Softy T Leather—that’s also water-resistant. 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, but uses a compound called Ranil. That, along with its design, is why it’s so lightweight. Also, this Whiton includes a SoftWair Technology Sole for extra comfort.
