An alternative to our classic styles, the Saxon collection features a 4-eye shoe and a monk shoe in a durable, distressed leather. This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This, together with our Z welt-stitch and heat-sealing process, makes it unique to Dr. Martens.This air-cushioned sole is hard-wearing, with good abrasion and slip resistance.
