The Dr. Martens 1461 has been the shoe of choice for workers and artists alike since it was first made back in the 1960s. This style pays tribute to the West Coast Hardcore punk scene -- which helped popularize Dr. Martens in the U.S. in the mid-'80s -- with a design inspired by the iconology and styling of Hardcore bands and their fans. The Japanese-style tattoo art includes koi fish, cherry blossoms, peacocks and clouds (plus a cherry red 1460 hidden away in the pattern) printed in muted tones on tan full grain leather. A simple black welt grooved sole offers a strong contrast to the intricate design.
