The 8-eye Whiton boot is a slimmed-down, contemporary re-imagination of the classic dr. Martens 1460 silhouette. Cutting edge modern style comes in the form of a subtle wedge cut and cutting edge comfort comes in the form of a softwair technology insole and an uber-lightweight sole. This Whiton 8-eye boot is made with a traditional, lightweight softy t leather that's also water-resistant. 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.
