The 1460 boot is one of the most iconic pieces of footwear out there and for its 60th birthday, Dr Martens will be partnering with 12 different brands to produce 12 different one-off boot designs. Their partnership with PLEASURES is 6th in the series and offers a unique take on the 1460’s history.
“LIFE IS REALLY TOUGH. AND THE 1460 IS PRACTICALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE.” ALEX JAMES, PLEASURES CO-FOUNDER
The design stays true to PLEASURES’ style of mixing the past and the present; founder Alex James wanted to fuse the raw, resounding energy of Punk Rock with the glossy, modernistic feel of New Wave. To emphasise this, the boot is made up of two clashing materials. The polished material represents the New Wave style of Punk, whilst the smooth matt finish represents the toughness of traditional Punk Rock. “PLEASURES NOW” is branded down the heel strip, and the boot comes with dual laces and hook eyelets and arrives in bespoke packaging that commemorates Dr Martens 60th anniversary.
