To celebrate their 60th anniversary, Dr. Martens created a new collection of footwear in the original Wollaston factory, using some of the finest leathers they could find. These shoes are crafted from Horween's Essex — a vegetable-tanned leather made with all-natural materials. Essex leather takes over three years to develop and is designed to age and build character with daily wear. Over time, these shoes will develop a unique patina and become your very own pair. They're tagged with a leather Horween label and gold-scripted heel loop.
