SIZE: 8

    Named after the date of its creation, 1st April, 1961, our 1461 shoe has become iconic. Originally sold as a durable working man’s shoe, in the 70s and 80s the style became popular with political protesters, and as a fashion item at universities across Britain. Today it’s worn as a symbol of rebellious self-expression by individuals from all walks of life.
    This 1461 shoe stays true to the original and features a hardwearing premium leather upper, classic 3-eye fastening and Dr. Martens durable welted construction; finished with our ultra comfortable AirWair technology and slip-resistant sole.

    Material

    Airwairs original signature leather: a firm, finished leather with a smooth, semi bright appearance.

    Care Instructions

    [Smooth] = Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth, allow to dry apply correct coloured wax based shoe polish to restore shine as desired.

    Construction

    This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.

    The shoes are extremely comfy after a short period of discomfort while breaking in.
    The inside sole of the shoe is already coming away from the bottom as it is only made of card-like material. This doesn't affect the shoes but you can feel it when taking them off.

    Twickenham DMs fan (disappointed).

    Classic style - but you have to know that 1461s are made in 3 different shapes - not obvious from the DMs website. These pointed toe narrow-fit shoes fit really well and don't make you look like a policeman. They also polish up really well.
    It's essentially a classic gibson shoe with the comfort of a DM sole.
    DMs have always required a lot of breaking-in, but the leather on these Vietnamese-made shoes seemed super-stiff. My last pair (made in Thailand) were much better.
    You can also pick them up much cheaper elsewhere online, but I had to be sure I was getting the narrow fit model. You need to know about a 59 last, an 84 last (pointed) and a comfort fit last, along with their respective item codes but this info seems hard to come by.
    That said, all my shoes are DMs!

    They were a lot easier to break in than I expected and a lot easier than the boots, I really appreciate there being an option for narrow feet as I would have struggled with regular fit shoes. I love the look of them and they go with everything. A classic shoe I would recommend to anyone.

    Overall robust design with strong soles
    Comfortable
    Matt black surface wore off after a few days, revealing grey leather. Polishing improves colour but can't repair texture.

    These are tough, strongly built shoes so the surface should stand up to wear and tear of being worn by a moderately active boy.
