Quilon leather upper. Leather and textile lining. Air-cushioned sole. Yellow stitching. Six eyelets. Branded heel loop. Upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together for added durability. As the story goes, the 101 was originally made for police officers in the ‘60s, boasting a six-eye design that made it noticeably easy to fasten in emergency situations. The silhouette was eventually subverted by rebels, leading it to become a footwear favorite in punk rock circles. This particular pair is made in England in Dr. Martens’ original Wollaston factory, crafted from Quilon leather for a subtle two-tone finish. Goodyear-welted, the upper and sole of the boot are sewn together for added durability, instead of being glued together like many other shoes. For a classic Dr. Martens design that sits lower on the ankle, look no further than the 101 boot in the go-to black colorway.
