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 soft leather makes it sleek, sporty and right perfect for any and all winter looks. This whiton unisex boot is made with softy t, a lightweight full grain leather with a soft feel. 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: Leather.
