Rather than a real ostrich skin, the material on this shoe is in fact a high quality, exotic Italian print, which adds a lush, almost 3-D effect. The appearance of distinctive uneven bumps and replica quill follicles mimic the notoriously expensive and elegant look of real ostrich leather. When paired up with the Ambi Paisley Silk, the ostrich grey leather adds a sleek touch to the Brogue Shoe.

- Grey Ostrich and Paisley silk
- Leather-welted, the upper and sole are sewn together
- Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole
This is a Goodyear-welted product using leather 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.
