The 1460 is the original Dr. Martens boot. The boot's recognizable DNA looks like this: 8 eyes, grooved sides, a heel-loop, yellow stitching, and a comfortable, air-cushioned sole. Built to last, this men's boot is made using one of the finest methods of construction: the Goodyear Welt ? which means the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch. The boot sits on our iconic AirWair? sole, which is oil and fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance, and is made with the soft, supple Nappa leather.
