An unlikely pairing of talents and interests, footwear brand Dr. Martens was the creation of Dr. Maertens, a Munich-base physician who tinkered with inventions on his spare time, and the Griggs family of Northampton, England, generation of cobblers and boot makers. And with their very first collaboration, an 8-Eyelet Boot Model 1460, in 1960, both transformed the so-called “establishments” during the next 5 decades. Whether be the counterculture movements of the 1960s and 70s, the Punk rock scene of the 1980s, to the high fashion circle of today, and more…
That pairing of talents and interests appears once again as Stussy partnered with Dr. Martens in designing the Desert Boots for Stussy Deluxe 2009 Fall Collection. Made from supple premium suede, each boot feature a crepe outsole with Dr. Maertens’ ingenious creation, the Air Wair cushioning system. The boot is then outfitted with piping, heel tab and laces in contrast colors – purple for black, green for brown. A Stussy Double-S emblem is etched on outer heel. The Stussy Deluxe x Dr. Martens – Desert Boots is now available at selected retailers, such as colette of Paris, with a general product launch this Saturday, August 22nd, at its Stussy Chapters worldwide.
