Dr. Martens‘ iconic amphibian 1460 celebrates 60 years. The first model put on the market was in 1960 (classic amphibian with 8 holes in cherry red color), soon becoming the shoes of postmen, workers and policemen, who however had to blacken the yellow seam because their regulation did not allow it. But above all they became the unmistakable symbol of English subcultures such as punk and rock of those years.
So, to celebrate it, the famous English brand has launched a very special collection, created in collaboration with 12 different designers, who have interpreted it each according to their aesthetic taste.
After the first launch in January with the camouflage graphics of A Bathing Ape, and the one in February signed by Raf Simons, the exclusive March drop was finally revealed, created together with the Japanese brand Beams and Babylon.
This special edition combines the imagery linked to the West Coast with the Japanese minimalist taste. It is characterized by the orange details (color dear to Beams) and the Babylon logo, imprinted on the tongue, on the lateral heel and on the metal medal tied to the laces.
The 1460 Dr. Martens x BEAMS x Babylon amphibian is on sale exclusively for Italy from Slam Jam.
