Dr. Martens has just announced their newest SS22 City Pack. They feature four iconic cities captured on four distinct one-off reworks of their most iconic shoe silhouette.
The City pack pays tribute to New York, London, Tokyo, and LA with four limited-edition takes on the Original 1461 shoe. Each shoe captures the vibrance of four iconic cities–with each metropolis’s energy, soul and grit stitched into every silhouette.
The 1461 New York is built from a mashup of black and yellow Smooth leathers–nodding to the classic yellow taxi. Enhanced with a ‘Big Apple’ graphic on the backstrap and a New York map on the insole, the shoes are fitted with flecked laces and an antique black ‘NY’ lace charm.
The 1461 Los Angeles is printed with a bold digital print of an LA sunset. Made from durable Backhand leather, the shoes are finished with contrast black backstraps printed with‘L’ and ‘A’ lettering and an antique black ‘LA’ lace charm.
The 1461 London is crafted from Smooth leather in various shades of grey–paying tribute to the city’s many buildings. Detailed with ‘double yellow lines on the backstrap and a popped yellow eyelet and lace tips, the shoes are fitted with an antique black ‘LDN’ lace charm and a sock-liner printed with a map of the city.
Lastly, the 1461 Tokyo has a monochrome design inspired by Tokyo’s Shibuya crossing. Split down the middle, it’s built from a hybrid of black and white Patent Lamperleather and fitted with matching monochrome hardware and an antique black ‘TKY’ lace charm. An asymmetric print on the sock liner and ‘Stop and ‘Go’ lettering on the backstrap all nod to the iconic crossing.
The collection is available from the 14th of July in stores and online.
