THE SECOND INSTALLMENT OF AN EXPLOSIVE TWO-PART COLLABORATION FROM DR. MARTENS AND BRUTALIST-GRUNGE ICON RICK OWENS

A spirit of independence and a champion of energetic non-conformity. Rick Owens has been subverting expectations since the early 90s — a rise that coincides with Dr. Martens own grunge renaissance. A shared history of vitality and rebellion forms the foundation for the second part of the Dr. Martens x Rick Owens collaboration.

Back in March, we released a distorted version of our 1460 Bex platform silhouette, adorned with Owens’ Pentagramlacing — and now it’s back in a flexible Pearl Hi Suede. Tonal 2.5-metre laces call to Owens’ dark-glam drapery, intercut with our rugged, hard-hitting Bex sole. The combination of our iconic 1460 silhouette and Owens’ elaborate detailing has produced a boot with primal, punk swagger and wearable flexibility.

Renowned for a refinement that unlocks the rock-and-roll attitude at the heart of gender-fluid clothing — nearly 30 years of trademark defiance make Owens the ideal partner to reimagine our utilitarian silhouettes.

Owens’ eccentric, architectural design is on full display in a custom version of our gladiator-inspired Gryphon sandal. Built using our tough Black Smooth leather that emphasises Owens’ sculptural, elevated aesthetic. The Gryphon Strap RO stands on a custom width Smoke Shore sole. Elongated straps and an additional ankle strap are locked together with Palladium detailing and finished with yellow stitching and a Black and Pearl heel loop.

Dr. Martens and Rick Owens have championed a spirit of subversion and defiance that is on full display inour counter-cultural classic 1461 Bex shoe.

Our Original 3-eye shoe stands a little taller and looks a little bolder with the Rick Owens touch. The 1461 Bex
DS is made with Black Smooth leather and is stacked on a Smoke Bex sole, finished with a distinctive Yellow and Pearl double welt stitch. The shoe is also debossed with Owens’ DEEPER THAN A MOTHERS TEARS motif. A classic silhouette with a taste for non-conformity and rebellion.
