Color: BLACK
Material: BRANDO
Product Code: 15696001


Literally reinventing and modernising the Open Airwair sandals from Dr. Martens' archive, this segment offers two starkly contrasting choices. The more conventional Strap Sandal has two side buckles and a heel loop for ease of use, and proudly carries the famous yellow stitch on the sole to complete a simple yet very appealing look. By contrast, the Ankle Strap Sandal - in the same rich black Brando leather - is a much bolder look, with a fascinating mix of gladiatorial and bondage aesthetics. The high heel with loop for ease of use sits above two side buckles, while running down the centre is an overlaid toe strap. Very modern, very catwalk, very Dr. Martens.

This is a Goodyear-welted product using PVC for the welt. The upper and sole are sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This, together with our Z welt-stitch and heat-sealing process, makes it unique to Dr. Martens. This is the only construction that is stitched on the outside and helps footwear take the shape to the foot.  The welt is chain stitched to the upper and insole. The outsole is then sewn to the welt around the edge and then heat sealed.  This is the sturdiest and most complex of all constructions.


A heavy weight classic waxed American style pullup Analine leather.


The original Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole, providing underfoot comfort and durability since 1960. It is oil- and fat-resistant, tough and offers good abrasion and slip resistance.
