Dr Martens Hair on Horsey Collection
Most famous for their 8 eye boot with bouncing sole, Dr.Martens have released an autumn/winter 2011 limited edition collection that includes a modernised version of the iconic 8 eye boot, as well as a 1461 style Derby shoe.
This latest collection – named the ‘Hair on Horsey Pack’ – utilises horsehair material for the entire upper. The horsehair was sourced from the Vincenza Pelli tannery in Italy, and creates a distinct yet soft appearance.
The boot and the Derby shoe are available in two colour ways of either black or burgundy. Both of which feature black laces, harmonious stitching, black rubber welt and come with the all important infamous Dr.Martens thick bouncing sole.
This collection of footwear is comfortable and hard wearing – providing you with both function and style. Animal print and inspired pieces are seemingly taking centre stage this season within menswear, and through the unique choice of material used on this collection, you (or at least your feet) are bound to become centre of attention and get noticed. Not only that, but the horsehair provides you with another tactile piece – allowing you to mix textures to create looks and outfits with real depth.
The Dr Martens Hair on Horsey collection is available at Oki-ni now.
