The origin of the Creeper goes deep: first appearing after World War II, when soldiers rocked sturdy, crepe-soled military issue boots at London clubs - and did a dance called The Creep. In the 70s, the shoe's distinctive look was adopted by various subcultures, including punk and goth. Fast forward to today: the women's Masha Creeper is a fashion-forward look inspired by the goth subculture's penchant for strappy boots. It's perfect capper to your mysterious Victorian air, with a chunky platform sole and a subtly pointed toe - along with iconic Doc DNA like yellow welt stitching and the classic heel loop. The Masha women's Creeper boot is constructed on Dr. Martens air-cushioned soles, that are oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance - and have been since 1960. Durable and solid, the boot is Goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in a heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. The wine and tan boots are made with Soft Buck, a genuine pigskin nubuck with a very soft feel. Material: Nubuck.
