Today we can preview the upcoming Dr. Martens Desert Boot Camo Wedge Collection, which will be exclusive to London retailer Footpatrol. The collection is comprised of two styles, each coming in two versions – one more subtle and the other one a little more bold in terms of design.
This new lightweight model from Dr. Martens fuses a street-casual look with original cobbling techniques that have been honed and refined for over 50 years of shoe and boot manufacturing. The combination of this contemporary upper styling and materials reinvent this all time classic.
We have two models (The Manton & The Nixon) in two colour options. The Manton an updated Desert Boot features a welted sole (either khaki camo coloured or pixelated desert couloured), contrast stitching and the classic Dr. Martens heel tab. The Manton Khaki has a water resistant suede upper with canvas lining and fudge coloured outsole, the Manton Sand has been applied with a 10oz heavyweight canvas upper, porcelain coloured laces and Beige Aqualine inner lining.
The Nixon available in two different camo options features a Goodyear welted sole (the upper and sole are heat sealed and then welted together). The first option is the Nixon Khaki Camo, a waxed, weatherproofed cotton canvas using the British Army Camo print with Electric Orange cotton drill lining. Additional touches are the Bitter Chocolate coloured storm welt and Fudge coloured outsole. The Nixon Desert Storm camo uses the contemporary US Marine Core pixelated camo print with a Milkshake coloured storm welt and Aqualine Shoal beige coloured lining.”
Footpatrol will launch the Dr. Martens Camo Wedge Boot Collection on May 12th, 2012.
