Created by looking into Dr. Martens archive for design inspiration, this style has been replicated to look as it was when first manufactured. The 5-eye Church Monkey Smooth Boot style is from our Archive Collection. In our signature Smooth Leather with contrast stitching, it's a real statement. Our classic smooth leather is durable and famously stiff to start with; it molds to your feet and gets more comfortable with wear. Smooth leather can be polished to a dapper shine, or artfully scuffed up, depending on your preference. Made with Goodyear welt, the upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This, together with our Z welt-stitch and heat-sealing process, makes it unique. Dr. Martens have an air-cushioned sole, are oil and fat resistant and offer good abrasion and slip resistance.
