For the next collaboration in the Dr. Martens 1460 Remastered series, which celebrates 60 years of this iconic boot, renowned American designer Marc Jacobs adds his take on a classic with the attention-grabbing, do-it-yourself attitude that has shaped both brands in mind.

A partnership that goes back 27 years, when Marc Jacobs famously presented a grunge collection (with Dr. Martens on their feet) for Perry Ellis in 1993 and got fired, Dr. Martens and Marc Jacobs reunite in a creative collaboration for the new season. Taking inspiration from the ideas of customisation, as well as cues from the American designer’s own collection, expect the signature boot draped in a selection of gold trinkets, including whistles, keys, dice, and gems, on chains around the leather boot.

The boot, which comes in classic burgundy, features a fully vegan upper and vegan heel loop, with the exposed yellow welt stitching that Dr. Martens are known for. It is also fitted out with a cushioned in-sole and dual-branded tongue label with swing tag.

On the release, Marc Jacobs says, “Dr. Martens has long been a symbol of individuality and counterculture. Marc Jacobs and Dr. Martens are united in a strong sense of authenticity and ‘having your voice heard’.”

The Marc Jacobs x Dr. Martens boot drops on September 26, and will be available for $1,999 at LCX Ocean Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui’s Harbour city (2698 9825), and Hysan Place in Causeway Bay (2892 1832).
