Sex Pistols and Dr. Martens have reunited once again for a concise set of Punk-indebted leather goods. The new collaboration includes the low cut 1461 and the 1460 boot, emblazoned with black and white graphics that nod to the British rock band’s infamous Bill Grundy incident in 1976. This release follows the first co-sign from back in January — two pairs of boldly designed 1460 boots.
The 1461 is emblazoned entirely in newspaper headline prints that reference the band’s controversial television appearance on Bill Grundy’s show — when the band swore on-air and shocked the nation. It comes with round black eyelets, white laces, a black heel pull etched with “AirWair” and a smoothly rounded toebox. As a final touch, the shoe comes with a blacked-out midsole, offering a bold contrast to the white uppers. The high cut 1460 boots sport the words “GOD SAVE THE QUEEN” over the toebox. “Anarchy” appears at the bottom of laces, complementing the large print at the backstay. Completing the design, the black midsole is detailed with contrasting white stitches that add a nuanced accent to the rugged shoe.
The Sex Pistols x Dr. Martens 1460 and 1461 will be available on April 11 on END.’s website for $184 USD and $160 USD, respectively.
