UK-based footwear brand Dr. Martens, famous for updating youth culture classics for the modern audience, has teamed up with the Sex Pistols to create a new range of offerings.

Conveniently enough, the pairing of the two makes for a rather legendary collaboration, with both being the first to really expose punk culture to the masses. The band was one of the first to bring punk rock to the forefront, with their wild style and attitude being completely frowned upon by mainstream media. But in many ways their unique lifestyles lead a revolt against the working class status-quo, producing a new wave of youth in post-war Britain. To commemorate the iconic band, Dr. Martens has channeled their lasting influence, presenting a four-model collection that hosts an array of quotes and imagery from the group.

The all-black 1460 boots sport a backhand straw grain leather upper, toting a printed image of frontman Sid Vicious in action, a “I Wanna Be Me” track name at the rear, and red-stitching on the outsole that commemorates the skinhead style of the era. The ultra-high 1490 boots offer a similar leather in white, with bold contrasting-colors, and quote-filled black stripes marking the sides. The Derbys come in a smooth leather, with a cutout over-toe detailing that features a tonal metallic plaque. White “boredom” text marks the lateral sides.

Finally, the low-profile Pressler sneaker comes in a white canvas, with a black rubberized trim around the toe. The sneaker is equally doused in quotes, with the outsole donning a vibrant red. Both the sneakers and the boots utilize a yellow pull tab toting Dr. Martens “Bouncing Soles” slogan, paired with quote-printed laces that feature the Sex Pistols’ infamous track, “No Feelings.”

Checkout the images of the newly released collab above, and if you’re looking for a pair, head over to SSENSE where they are priced between $80 USD — $170 USD.
