British label A-COLD-WALL* and Dr. Martens have grown a strong relationship over recent years. The duo previously redesigned Dr. Martens’ 1460, 1461, and many more, returning to the 1461 Oxford shoe for Spring/Summer 2023.

The collaboration pays tribute to A-COLD-WALL* and Dr. Martens’ journey thus far and revisits the model that kicked off their Fall/Winter 2021 partnership. Clad in black and grey hues, the silhouette is dominated by utilitarian touches synonymous with Samuel Ross‘ design language.

The 1461 Oxford shoe is crafted from water-resistant and tumbled nubuck, taking inspiration from architectural motifs that define working-class Britain. The uppers are complimented by metal rivets above the toe boxes and rears, while functional zippers replace traditional lacing systems. ACW*’s linear logo is pressed into the heel counters alongside standard AirWear pull tabs. Finally, co-branded insoles, semi-translucent rubber outsoles, and tinted stitching complete the design.

Take a closer look at A-COLD-WALL* and Dr. Martens’ 1461 Oxford shoe collaboration above. Both pairs will be available on May 25 and 26 via both brands and select retailers.
