The Originals are the most iconic Dr. Martens styles. From the time they were invented through their subversive history, these pieces have come to stand for everything classic about Dr. Martens brand. The 3-eye laced Ally creeper oxfords come from Dr. Martins archives and are interlaced on the toe. Dr. Martens signature air-cushioned sole completes the look. It is oil and fat resistant, tough and offers good abrasion and slip resistance. These shoes are made using PVC Goodyear welt. The upper and sole are sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This is the only construction that is stitched on the outside and helps footwear take the shape to the foot. The welt is chain stitched to the upper and insole. The outsole is then sewn to the welt around the edge and heat sealed. This is the sturdiest and most complex of all constructions. The upper is made from Dr. Martens signature Smooth leather. Material: Leather.
