Back in the day, when I was a young teen living in New Jersey in the early 90s, I was obsessed with sneaking out & heading to the night clubs of NYC. That was the thing to do. (Who remembers Palladium, Limelight and The Tunnel??) But the thing was, you couldn’t wear sneakers or casual clothes to the clubs back then, you had to dress smart & wear proper shoes to get past the doormen. Obviously if you’re gonna be on your feet for 5 to 6 hours, you don’t want uncomfortable shoes. So this was my go-to brand — Dr. Martens. I have a deep, long-standing connection to Docs. They were smart enough to get in and comfy enough to dance in.
It’s an amazing honor that I now get to touch this historic brand again—in our 20th anniversary!
The Dr. Martens x Staple “1461” shoe features a soft suede upper, printed with a custom Pigeon Camo – our take on traditional army camouflage print. To offset the muted grey upper, we updated their classic heel tab to our trademark “Pigeon Pink”. The patented Dr. Martens AirWair™ outsole is finished off in a dope matte grey.
The Dr. Martens x Staple “1461” shoes are available now on staplepigeon.com, then in selected Dr. Martens stores beginning June 17th.
