Dr Martens Codie Shoe

Material: BRANDO
Product Code: 16185240



Tattoos have been an important part of skinhead culture from its very beginnings, initially inspired by simple designs found on the arms of 1950s and 1960s British factory workers. A number of key emblems became a staple part of skin tattoo culture.

The Tattoo Etched 3-Eye Shoe and Boot carry images etched into the Brando leather: a pair of swallows with hair clippers, the infamous ‘Cut Here’ mark that more extreme skins had etched across their throats, spiders’ webs, scorpions, stars and barbed wire roses.

  • 3 Eye Shoe
  • Tattoo Etched Brando leather. Brando is a full-grain, waxy leather and as such, it will change appearance with age, creating a distressed look
  • Goodyear-welted, the upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together
  • Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole 


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


A heavy weight classic waxed American style pullup Analine leather.


This sole is hard-wearing, with good abrasion and slip resistance.
