The 3989 brogues were first manufactured in the mid 60’s and were popular with smarter counter cultures who were fascinated with the brand and its working class outdoor product origins. This season updates with treatment in Boanil Brush leather. Beginning life as a high-shine flat color which rubs away with wear to reveal another color underneath, creating a shoe that’s as individual as its wearer.
Hi Shine Classic 2 tone rub off leather – the 2 tone effect is created in the final shoeroom treatment to reveal contrast colour particulary in toe and counter area.
Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth, allow to dry apply a Dr.Martens clear or colour wax based shoe polish as appropriate to restore shine as desired. Do not use any leather cleaners on this leather they could damage the 2 tone effect.
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
