Dr. Martens’ 1461 shoe is a British icon, having been deep rooted in a long list of subcultures for many decades now. That association is something that’s right at the core of A-COLD-WALL* — since day one, the label has been centred around spotlighting facets of British subcultures, utilising everything from sportswear to workwear in the process.

Hidden Ghillie Laces
In celebration of that, Dr. Martens and A-COLD-WALL* extend their partnership this season, bringing that cult-favourite shoe to the stage. The duo taps into Ross’ longstanding love of Brutalist architecture, which is reflected in the industrial approach taken to its construction.

Translucent Soles
The uppers are cut from smooth black leather and feature hidden ghillie lacing — giving a more angular, brutalist-like appearance — then detailed with silver-tone rivets to further the rugged aesthetic. The soles are reworked, too — they’re made using translucent grey rubber, nodding to the muted, industrial-inspired colours favoured by Samuel Ross' label.
