Iconic British label Dr. Martens has long been a leader in progressive footwear design and durability. Launched in 1960, the brand released a revolutionary concept with its groundbreaking “AirWair with Bouncing Soles” technology, bringing air-cushioned soles and stylish construction to the everyday workman’s boot.

Now, over 56 years later, Dr. Martens returns with yet another game-changing concept with its new “DM’s Lite” shoe. Merging the brand’s associated comfort and utilitarian sensibilities with an ultra-lightweight sole and fashion-meets-athletic appeal, the DM’s Lite is offered in three different styles – Newton 8-Eye Boot, Cavendish 3-Eye Shoe and Edison Tassel Loafer – and comes in both black and cherry red leather colorways.

Additional features include a SoftWair memory foam insole, moisture-wicking technology coated on the exterior, and trademark yellow stitching and grooved sidewall.
