Building on their longstanding history of individualization and genuine quality, Dr. Martens announce their “Dr. Martens Bespoke” collection. Centered around two classic styles – the 1460 8-eye boot and the 1461 3-eye shoe – the collection will offer the opportunity to order a handcrafted pair, cut to the customer’s exact specifications. Almost every aspect of the shoe’s construction will be customizable utilizing a range of Cordovan and ostrich leathers and a variety of laces, stitching, welts and outsole options. Finishing touches are made by housing each pair in a walnut veneer hardwood box with wooden shoetrees. Dr. Martens Bespoke collection will make its initial debut through a traveling roadshow featuring custom Tanner Krolle trunks inspired by the classic Oxblood Dr. Martens leather. The traveling exhibit will launch on October 5, 2011 at Dover Street Market in London before making its way to Beijing, Tokyo, Paris and the United States.
