Dr. Martens has been celebrating its 60th anniversary for the past 12 months, tapping the likes of Marc Jacobs, NEEDLES, and A-COLD-WALL* for a number of 1460 boot makeovers. Today marks the final 1460 Remastered collaboration, this time around working with mastermind WORLD for a fittingly punk-inspired take on the iconic boot.
Masaaki Homma‘s mastermind JAPAN and its sub-brand mastermind WORLD is the cult Japanese streetwear brand known exclusively by its use of the skull as a motif. With this, Homma says the skull represents “a fight until death to fulfill one’s destiny,” and this ride-or-die logic has been used throughout the twenty-plus years mastermind has existed. It consistently references the punk world and has made this one of its core aesthetics, appreciating the British subculture all while giving it a distinguished twist.
As a result, the mastermind WORLD x Dr. Martens 1460 Remastered boot is perfect for the punk within you. Made from black leather, the boots feature iconic yellow welt stitching alongside a black and yellow heel loop that notes its AirWair soles. mastermind WORLD comes into the collaboration by adding not just its signature skull motif to the lateral-side collar and heel, but by also adding a skull-branded dog tag, a jungle-zip on the front with a mastermind WOLRD-branded zipper pull, nickel trims, and a medial-side zip.
The mastermind WORLD x Dr. Martens 1460 Remastered boot can be seen in closer detail above, and will release on Dr. Marten’s website and at select retailers worldwide on December 12.
