Elaborate and ostentatious, the adoption of Victorian mourning fashion as an expression of rebellious nonconformity rather than its original rule-following intent shows the ingenuity of the goth subculture. The very idea that the purity of lace was reclaimed by a subculture for its intricate, webbed nature makes it the ultimate gothic adornment. Dr. Martens lace print contrasts echoes that sentiment, providing a stark contrast to dark fabric and leatherâand setting the stage for lavish style. And as a print on a pair of boots? That's pretty goth. This Pascal features contrast white eyelets, and was constructed on the iconic Dr. Martens AirWair bouncing sole, that's oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance. The women's 8-eye boot is Goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in a heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. This 8-eye boot was made from Smooth, classic Dr. Martens leather: durable, with a smooth finish. Material: Leather.
