The 1460 is the original Dr. Martens boot. The boot’s recognizable dna looks like this: 8 eyes, grooved sides, a heel-loop, yellow stitching, and a comfortable, air-cushioned sole. This season, the boot gets a slick, glossy makeover with metallic chrome — in a synthetic, 100 percent vegan material.
- Constructed on the iconic, durable Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole
- Good slip resistance and abrasion
- Made with a Goodyear welt: the upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together with a z-welt stitch
- Made with a synthetic material in a chrome metallic finish
- 100% Vegan Dr. Martens boot – identified by the yellow heel-loop
Products by Type: Chukka
Chukka boots or Desert Boots are rather popular today, and there are many manufacturers of casual chukka boots and also bespoke versions of it. Considering the casual nature of the Chukka boot, I would never combine a crepe sole Chukka boot with dress pants or a suit.
At the same time, an elegant Chukka boot can be paired like a suede shoe, and looks great with dress pants and suits. For example, I have an elegant pair of St. Crispin Chukka boots in mid brown suede leather that goes very with almost anything I wear.
The possibilities of incorporating them into one’s wardrobe are endless. Dress Chukka boots with thin leather soles on an elegant last in brown can be paired with a navy or mid-gray suits and a range of other colors and patterns.
Products by Type: Vegan
Vegan shoes are made without the use of animal byproducts or materials, such as leather, suede, wool, shearling, silk or fur.
Vegan shoes are made of a variety of synthetic fabrics. Most vegan leathers are made from polyurethane (PU), a type of plastic that is bonded to a cotton backing.
Vegan suede is often made from microfibre synthetic fabric. Instead of a leather sole, animal-free shoes use a part-recycled resin sole with insoles made of recycled cardboard, as is the industry standard.
Beyond Skin vegan shoes are made using the finest quality fully breathable faux leathers, 100% recycled Dinamica faux suede, luxurious woven Italian fabrics, 100% recycled Italian faux leather linings and cream lacquered resin soles.
