With a focus on craftsmanship, these 3-eye shoes are built on an elegantly tapered last from from high-shine patent leather. The classic 1461 shape takes its name from its date of inception:, and gets its comfort and durability status from Dr. Martens signature welt and air cushioned sole. It is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions. The sole is hard-wearing, with good abrasion and slip resistance. Material: Leather.
