It’s been 60 years since the first 1460 rolled off the production line — the original Dr. Martens boot. To celebrate, here we’ve reimagined it in white Virginia leather, complete with a black heel loop and white welt stitching. The boots are finished with grooved sides and a comfortable air-cushioned sole.
- Born on 1/4/60. Named the 1460. Over six decades, our 8-eye boot has become Iconic
- Virginia is a soft, fine-grain leather that is treated to make it smooth and supple. Clean with a damp cloth and care with Dr. Martens Shoe Polish
100% Leather soft virgina leather
50% Leather / 50% Textile
75% Textile, 25% Leather
Durable and famously stiff to start, our Smooth Leather can be polished to a dapper shine or artfully scuffed-up depending on your preference.
Clean away dirt using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr.Martens Wonder Balsam, Neutral or coloured wax polish as appropriate, using a Dr.Martens shoe brush, (Neutral can be applied to all colours). Allow to dry, then buff vigorously to desired shine using a second clean Dr.Martens shoe brush. (We advise to use 2 brushes per colour, one to add the polish and the second, clean dry brush, to buff up the leather for the best results).
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
