English shoemaker Dr. Martens has teamed up with Herschel Supply Co. for a Pacific Northwest-inspired shoe collaboration, merging their everyday utilitarian aesthetics to rework the Combs II boot and Reeder shoe.
Appearing in black, both shoes have been crafted with a weather-resistant CORDURA Ballistic nylon and a WP leather upper. The Herschel Combs II boot and Herschel Reeder shoe were constructed with several functional details including black eyelets, reflective tongue webbing, brushed silver lace hooks, black and white braided laces and smoke tract outsoles for heightened comfort.
Additionally, the footwear offerings feature a red Dr. Martens AirWair heel loop, black Herschel tab and are completed with Dr. Martens signature yellow welt stitch. Topping off the collaboration are co-branded insoles and a custom box, which features Herschel Supply’s signature red and navy branding.
Recently, Dr. Martens collaborated with Haven on the 1461 silhouette. The all-black offering features a mixed material upper, utilizing calf and full-grain leathers from C.F. Stead.
The Dr. Martens x Herschel collection releases Saturday, October 9, on drmartens.com, hershel.com and with select partners.
