The 1461 is without a doubt Dr. Martens’ most recognised silhouette. Since its initial launch 60 years to the day — the date the shoe is named after — it’s successfully infiltrated a plethora of subcultures across the globe, becoming a uniform for many.
Sat atop an air-cushioned sole that’s been reinforced with Dr. Martens’ signature yellow welt stitching, the 1461 remains untouched in terms of its craftsmanship since its birth. Traditionally dressed in shades of “Cherry” or black, the brand has since expanded its offering in recent decades, to include an array of new colorways and finishes. From “Peppermint Green” in a soft smooth leather and “Sun Yellow” suede lace ups, to stand-out white patent leathers — there’s a 1461 for everyone.
Showcasing the 1461: Made in England range with a clean and concise lookbook, here demos the silhouette’s versatility, by showing us how to wear and style the shoe in 2021, and why the 1461 can be everyone’s alternative summer footwear choice.
