Our classic 3 eye shoe, the 1461, takes its name from its date of inception: the day after the 1460 8-eye boot. These styles embody all that is true and unique to Dr. Martens. Made from smooth leather and comes in a variety of colors. Our boots and shoes have become icons, recognized worldwide for their uncompromising looks, durability and comfort. 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.
