DR. MARTENS x NEEDLES IS NOW SOLD OUT
Tradition: reinvented. For our 8th 1460 Remastered collaboration, we’ve joined creative forces with cult favourite Needles.A self-proclaimed punk, Needles founder Keizo Shimizu has played a big part in altering the course of Japanese fashion. And with his lifelong enthusiasm for DM’s and his knack for taking old pieces and reinvigorating them with modernistic styling, the unchanged-in-six-decades design of the 1460 boot is the ideal outlet.
“THE 1460 BOOT STANDS THE TEST OF TIME. IT HAS THIS TIMELESS, UNIVERSAL, UNBIASED ATTRACTIVENESS” — NEEDLES
A clash between the deep-set heritage of our 1460 boot and Needles ultra-modern design philosophy, our latest collaboration sees 1960 meet 2020. And Shimizu reimagines an icon that’s remained the same since it first rolled off the production line 60 years ago. With Needles’ trademark ‘Papillon’ butterfly — inspired by the movie of the same name — floating above our yellow stitching, it’s a unification of two brand beacons.
