The boots come in muted colorways of black and beige, accented with subtle hits of purple all around. The top of the collars are kept relatively sleek, minimizing padding for a skinnier fit. Three pairs of eyelet hooks are placed at the uppermost regions while tonal eyelet rings follow through onto the forefoot. At its heel counter, an extra leather panel has been added to contrast the suede uppers, complemented by Dr. Marten’s signature “AirWair” pull tab along the backstay. All of these details sit atop a cushioned blacked-out sole which has been reinforced with thick stitches. Details like purple-tinged aglets, inner cushions, embroidery at the heel tab and dual-branded hang tags round up the collaborative footwear.
THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL x Dr. Martens 9 Tie Boots will be available on November 9 at nanamica.com for $366 USD.
