As the shift towards quality becomes a forefront characteristics for many these days, Dr. Martens launches an all new collection called “For Life”. The boots which have transcended various vocations and sub-cultures doesn’t see a change in form and aesthetic as much as it does see some new heavy-duty changes to construction. A quick run-down of the changes includes the following 1. New, durable HardLife leather uppers which are soft, supple and water/stainproof; 2. Goodyear Welted as opposed to glued; 3. Durable ground leather insole; 4. Increased outsole core from 5 mm to 7 mm. For the most part, all “For Life” instances are guaranteed for life and benefit from free repairs. Both the fan-favorite 8-hole 1460 and 3-hole 1461 are seen with these changes and available now at select retailers.
