Mastermind World and Dr. Martens have collaborated on its latest boot, offering consumers something expectedly edgy to celebrate the combat boot brand's 60th anniversary. To celebrate its anniversary, Dr. Martens have been releasing a new collaborative take on its iconic 1460 Remastered silhouette. Past collaborations from the year include Marc Jacobs, and A-COLD-WALL*.
Combining elements from both brands, these boots take on a more punk look than usual, boasting a skull and cross bone motif, alongside a lace and zip-up aesthetic. The all-over black boots feature the white skull stamp, as well as Dr. Martens' signature yellow stitching across the sole of the shoe.
This collaboration, arriving in December, serves as the last of the co-made boot releases.
