Originally sold as a durable working man's shoe, 1461 became popular with political protesters in the late 60s and 70s, and eventually made its way into the closets of university students across Britain. The best thing about 1461: It's always been a blank slate for self-expression and reinvention. This version of the men's shoe features soft, rich Carpathian leather and all the classic Doc DNA, like grooved sides, yellow stitching and their iconic air-cushioned sole. This is a Goodyear-welted product, the upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions. Full-grain leather with a natural tumbled texture. Material: Leather.
