The whiton takes the 8-eye 1460 profile and gives it a sleek, athletic look with a slight wedge contrast sole. In addition, it's a lightweight men's boot, using new Dr.Martens air cushioned sole technology. Its utilitarian waxed canvas and leather details are borrowed directly from army kit bags, but the look is anything but military. The addition of hi-suede makes it sleek, sporty and right perfect for any and all winter looks. This whiton men's boot is made with a traditional, lightweight hi suede that's also water-resistant and 100% cotton waxy canvas. It has all the DNA of a classic doc. It's goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort, but uses a compound called ranil. That, along with its design, is why it's so lightweight. Also, this whiton includes a softwair technology sole for extra comfort. Material: Canvas.
