This is our classic 3 eye shoe. The second style that Dr. Martens made, the shoe was crafted for industry — and made rebellious by generations of non-conformists.
Made with Crazy Horse, a hefty leather with a waxy finish, the 1461 is crafted with the same Doc’s DNA as its 8-eye counterpart: grooved edges, yellow stitching and our iconic, comfortable air-cushioned sole. Best of all, the sole is secured using one of the finest construction methods available: the Goodyear Welt.
Natural-type oil finished leather, with a worn, distressed appearance.
Clean away dirt using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr.Martens Wonder Balsam, add to shoes using the sponge applicator supplied with the product. Alternatively if a higher level of suppleness is desired, Dr Martens Neutral Dubbin could be used follow application instructions on product.
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
