Rick Owens, the avant-garde fashion designer known for his gothic-inspired aesthetics, has once again collaborated with the iconic British footwear brand Dr. Martens, known for its rebellious spirit and durable boots. The latest entry in this partnership brings forth the Rick Owens x Dr. Martens 1460 DMXL Mega Lace Boot, a Rick Owens-infused update to the 1460 Boot. This collaboration is a testament to both brands' commitment to pushing the boundaries of design and style, blending Owens' dark, edgy fashion sensibilities with Dr. Martens' classic, robust footwear construction.
The 1460 DMXL Mega Lace Boot is a bold reinterpretation of the classic 1460 silhouette, showcasing an exploration into the sculptural potential of Dr. Martens' iconic designs, elevated by Rick Owens' unique aesthetic. The boot features soft leather uppers that promise comfort and durability, mounted atop the newly released inflated DMXL sole. This sole is crafted from lightweight EVA for supreme comfort and features durable PVC pods for unmatched durability and grip. Rick Owens’ signature oversized pearl laces dramatically envelop the uppers, offering a striking contrast against the boot's dark palette. This detail adds a tactile dimension to the boot and serves as a distinctive mark of Owens' design ethos.
The Rick Owens x Dr. Martens 1460 DMXL Mega Lace Boot will release on February 8, 2024, through Rick Owens, Dr. Martens, and select retailers online and in-store. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $370.
