Hackney-based media station NTS Radio has made a name for itself by creating an immersive music platform with a community-led output. Since 2011, founder Femi Adeyemi has pushed NTS Radio into its own realm, broadcasting in over 50 locations worldwide.
The outlet has stepped out of its comfort zone in 2023 and now unites with Dr. Martens for an expressive 1461 Smooth Leather Oxford shoe collaboration. The duo’s rebellious attitudes collide, led by NTS’ “Don’t Assume” slogan.
NTS Radio redesigns Dr. Martens’ formal silhouette with simplistic black leather uppers and spreads “Don’t Assume” in vibrant green gothic lettering across the toe boxes. Traditional AirWear pull tabs facilitate entry, completing the design with tonal black rubber sole units.
Take a closer look at the NTS Radio x Dr. Martens 1461 Smooth Leather Oxford shoe in the gallery above. The collaboration will release via Dr. Martens and select retailers on June 22.
