Dr. Martens has joined forces with Tokyo-based label Wacko Maria. For the first-ever shoe to come out of the partnership, the brands revamped a pair of the classic 1461 Oxfords.

Launched in 2005, Wacko Maria was founded by retired professional soccer players Keiji Ishizuka and Atsuhiko Mori. The brand aims to hold a Japanese lens up to American culture, drawing inspiration from film, art and movies.

The remixed shoe takes a Wacko Maria signature – a bold animal print – and brings it to the Oxfords. Exemplifying the two brands’ individual connections to subcultures, the Oxford is being offered in a leopard print, available in a tan camel shade and a crisp white.

The Oxford is set on Dr. Martens’ rubber DMS sole and, naturally, features the brand’s recognizable bright yellow stitching.

The shoe arrives as only one of Dr. Martens’ latest collaborations. In June, the British brand tapped the Hackney-based NTS Radio for a gothic-looking shoe printed with the media station’s “Don’t Assume” slogan.

Beginning on August 4, the Dr. Martens x Wacko Maria 1461 Oxfords will be available online and at participating retailers for $160 USD.
