Heavyweight lifestyle blog Hypebeast.com have collaborated with Dr. Martens this season to release a limited edition brogue.
The brogue in question is modelled around the popular Dr. Martens 3989 5 eye brogue. By reworking the classic, they have been able to create a modernised and more sophisticated formal shoe.
The shoe is kept really simple by utilising the same black tone throughout the whole upper, as well as the sole – creating an all black effect. The sole itself has undergone the biggest transformation from the original 3989 5 eye brogue, as they featured the famous Dr. Martens contrasting coloured air cushioned sole. However, by utilising just one overall shade it gives these brogues the sleek aesthetic they deserve, and now this dress shoe wouldn’t look out of place at the office or even the most formal of occasions.
One feature that really adds to the uniqueness of the shoe is the actual brogue detailing; it has been embossed onto the shoe rather than using overlays of leather that the original style had (and most brogues for that matter). Other key detailing includes a contrast tan coloured leather lining that features both the Dr. Martens and Hypebeast branding.
Limited to just 150 pairs worldwide, these brogues are truly limited edition and bound to sell out before you know it.
