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.
Broadway - A full-grain, semi-analine, gently tumbled leather with a soft and comfortable feel. Fine Canvas - A cotton based canvas with plain weave.
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.
[Broadway] = Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth, allow to dry, apply a clear wax based shoe polish to restore shine as desired. In the event of heavy scuffing or loss of color then clean as before but add a matching colored wax based shoe polish and buff up the leather with brush and cloth as required.
[Canvas] = Clean Canvas with damp cloth only, for tough marks use small amount of mild soap on damp cloth.
