A Tradition of Work
The first pair of Dr. Martens 1460 boots rolled off the production line on April 1, 1960, and immediately found a home on the feet of working Britain. Post-war work boots were sturdy but extremely uncomfortable — and the men and women working the front lines of industry wanted something better. They found it in the 1460: its unique, comfortable air-cushioned sole, combined with the durable new upper of the boot, proved the ideal choice for those putting in long hours in demanding work environments.
To this very day, we stay true to our origins: designing and engineering innovative, cutting edge industrial footwear that works as hard as you do.
Work. Play. Repeat. Our instantly recognizable Originals—the 1460, 1461 and the 2976 —are now re-engineered with the service industry in mind. Built for bartenders, baristas, waiters, and anyone working 8-hour shifts, these are classic Docs with all the technical innovation you need. Men’s and women’s work boots feature slip-resistant GripTrax™ soles, moisture-wicking lining, extra cushioning and water-resistant leather. And all the style you want.
