The Vintage 3989 is a re-issue of an archive style, faithfully re-created in our Cobbs Lane factory in Northamptonshire, England, handcrafted using traditional cobbler’s techniques and machinery. The result? A fine piece of footwear, full of Dr. Martens heritage.
The shoe is made using Quilon, a durable, fine-textured recreation of the classic Dr. Martens leather that ages to perfection. Built to last, it’s made using one of the finest methods of construction: the Goodyear Welt — which means the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch. The boot sits on our durable, comfortable AirWair™ sole, that’s oil and fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance.
A reissue of the original Dr. Martens classic corrected-grain leather with a fine haircell print and rough back.
[Quilon] = Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth, allow to dry apply correct coloured wax based shoe polish to restore colour and shine level as desired.
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
