Size guide

The origin of the Creeper goes deep: first appearing after World War II, when soldiers rocked sturdy, crepe-soled military issue boots at London clubs—and did a dance called The Creep. In the 70s, the shoe’s distinctive look was adopted by various subcultures, including punk and goth.

Fast forward to today: the Martel Goth Creeper is based on an original from our archive dating back to the formative years of the Goth subculture. We took the look and refined it, with a subtly pointed toe, paisley embossed leather and silver buckle—and of course, classic Doc DNA in the form of our air-cushioned sole.

The Martel Goth Creeper is made with our iconic AirWair Bouncing Soles, that are oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance—and have been since 1960. The boot is Goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. The Martel Creeper comes in Smooth, the classic durable Dr. Martens leather with a smooth finish, with blocks of Paisley Smooth, a high-shine, fully-pigmented leather embossed with a classic Paisley design.

Construction

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

Stylish shoe
Buy the next size up as the shape of the shoe is too tight for your regular size.

At first glance already the monk strap and creeper style front of the shoe and all the details just kicked. When delivered and put on for real everything was as expected. Just fancy.
Not really, I saw the shoe and knew we were meant to be.

They are just beautiful! Great quality leather.
A little hard to wear in ( the backs are quite hard) but once done they are very comfortable :)
