Dr. Martens are joining creative forces with Japanese brand Needles. Reigniting an ongoing partnership, kicking things off for the year with a Made in England 2976 boot collaboration. And it’s the first for the storied brand. Partnering with the West-Coast centric brand to rework the Original Chelsea boot, Dr Martens & Needles have built a shoe that’s an amalgamation of Needles’ old-school Americana and Dr Martens unwavering DNA.
With Needles’ penchant for fusing the old and the new, the 2976 Chelsea boot is the ideal canvas. Taking Needles trademark ‘Papillon’ butterfly — inspired by the movie of the same name — and printing it just above the iconic yellow stitching, two brand beacons reunite once again. Coming in both Black Smooth leather and Cherry Red, the 2976 Snaffle NDLS is crafted to perfection in the Wollaston factory. Detailed with a Needles tassel, in brushed silver on the Black Smooth and an Antique Gold on the Cherry Red, and both boots are complete with a dual-branded sock liner. Finished with black and yellow heel loop. Made in England to the highest standards in the original Wollaston factory and loaded with decades of shoe making heritage.
