We’ve built our Original 101 6-eye ankle boot using soft, pebbled Virginia leather. The shoe is made as it has been since the 60s: welted on a trans grooved DMS outsole and secured with our signature yellow welt stitching.
Soft fine grained Nappa Laeather
Clean away dirt using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr.Martens clear or coloured wax polish as appropriate, using a Dr.Martens shoe brush, (Neutral can be applied to all colours). Allow to dry, then buff vigorously to desired shine using a second clean Dr.Martens shoe brush. (We advise to use 2 brushes per colour, one to add the polish and the second, clean dry brush, to buff up the leather for the best results).
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
