Editor’s Notes: Dr. Martens is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its legendary 1460 boot this year. In its third collaboration with Raf Simons, Dr. Martens gives the iconic boot a punk-inspired update.
For this collab, Simons says he took inspiration from the London punk scene. Talking to W Magazine, he said, “The rings are a referral to the rings we used in our spring 2019 collection — that collection was very much inspired by the London club scene, more specifically at that time when punk transformed into New Wave.”
He also suggested that the rings provide opportunities to personalize the classic 1460 boot. “You can personalize it by adding charms, or keep it clean as it is.”
