A little extra attitude. Our Bex sole sits between our classic air-cushioned outsole and a full-volume platform — bringing an elevated edge you can wear every day. Here the rugged sole underpins our Original shoe silhouette, built from tough Smooth leather and marked with our signature yellow welt stitching.
- Second off the DM’s production line, the 1461 is a 3-eye shoe championed for its versatility
- Our Goodyear-welted lines are heat-sealed at 700°C and reinforced with our signature welt stitch
- Platform height: 1 in; Heel height: 1 3/8 in
Durable and famously stiff to start, our Smooth Leather can be polished to a dapper shine or artfully scuffed-up depending on your preference.
Wipe away dirt using a damp cloth. Apply Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam to the outside of your footwear to keep the leather supple, strong and smooth. Once dry, buff vigorously to desired shine using a clean Dr. Martens Shoe Brush. Repeat regularly to prolong the life of your footwear.
