Its reputation precedes it as a bug squashing, foot stumping, pavement pounding do-it-all, so to re-imagine it along the line of preparatory essentials? Indeed, Japanese retailer SHIPS JET BLUE decided to take the path less traveled on its collaboration with Dr. Martens, in this case, a tassel moccasin. Sporting a patent leather sheen in both black and navy, the loafers notched up a bit of flair with a pair of tassels. But don’t just count these out as some wearable emblem for the pretentious few. The collaboration is still a Dr. Martens, through and through, with its oil proof, stain proof (and even bullet proof?) Air Wair outsole and oversize heel tab for “easy slippage”.
The SHIPS JET BLUE x Dr. Martens Limited Tassel Moccasins are available exclusively at Japan’s SHIPS JET BLUE retail locations and its online store on ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
