Simple. Functional. Direct. The Mellows men’s shoe is classic Dr. Martens comfort in a rugged, solid style. Four eyelets are topped by two twin ski hooks for a secure lace up—that stays tied. And even though it’s for every day wear, the Mellows’ subtle style comes through in curved contrast stitching and panel details.
The Mellows has the Dr. Martens iconic AirWair bouncing sole, that’s oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance—and has been since 1960. The boot is Goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. Mellows comes in Greenland, a subtly-worn, natural, waxy leather.
Natural leather, with a waxy surface and a subtle, worn finish.
Clean away dirt using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr.Martens clear or coloured wax polish as appropriate, using a Dr.Martens shoe brush, (Neutral can be applied to all colours). Allow to dry, then buff vigorously to desired shine using a second clean Dr.Martens shoe brush. (We advise to use 2 brushes per colour, one to add the polish and the second clean dry brush to buff up the leather for the best results). Or add Dr.Martens Wonder Balsam (using the sponge applicator supplied with the product) if a duller look and waxy feel is desired
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
