Editor’s Notes: Dr. Martens has come together with Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto to release an updated take on the classic 1490 boot.

Here, the 10-eye boot is a fusion of high-fashion and urban streetwear, boasting a supple leather upper, detailed with yellow stitching. To further mark the collaboration Yohji Yamamoto's signature is embossed on the outer collar. Lastly, the footwear is highlighted by Dr. Martens' latest innovation, Cubeflex technology, the brand's most flexible welted sole to date, featuring a distinctive grid pattern.

You can purchase the Yohji Yamamoto x Dr. Martens 1490 today through Dr. Martens.

Just last month we saw Dr. Martens collaborate with Stüssy on the Penton Loafer.
