Model [ DR 1048M384]Dr.Martens WHITON ARCADIA SHOES GREY DR1218We’re proud to be an icon of rebellious subcultures around the world. But we’re British to the core. The Made In England range is a love letter to our British working class roots—each one made in our original Northamptonshire factory. It’s there that a specialized team of cutters, clickers and welters employ a unique process—including traditional shoemaking methods and carefully preserved machinery—to create the distinct look of a Dr. Martens boot. The 8-eye Whiton boot is a slimmed-down, contemporary reimagination of the classic Dr. Martens 1460 silhouette. Cutting edge style comes through in its wedge cut, lightweight sole—and the clean lines and premium leather turn up the dressy factor to at least eleven. The Made In England Whiton 8-eye boot has our iconic AirWair bouncing sole, that’s oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance—and has been since 1960. This shoe is Goodyear-welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort. The Whiton is made with Arcadia, a classic, high-shine rub-off leather, giving a two-tone effect.
