Doc Martens x Engineered Garments

Doc Martens is renewing its partnership with Engineered Garments.

The footwear brand is working with Japanese designer Daiki Suzuki, who founded the brand in 1999, to update the 3989 5-eye brogue. Suzuki, who is known for collecting vintage clothing, mixed five different types of leather — croc, pebble and suede — to construct the shoes, which also feature yellow welt stitching, a Docs signature and an air-cushioned sole. The shoes, which are available now in black and brown, retail for $230.

The brand has focused more on implementing comfort and performance into its collections. Last year it launched a WinterGrip collection built for cold weather elements.

“As a footwear brand we are always looking to innovate and bring new technologies to market. This was a great opportunity to combine our classic Dr. Martens styling with a modern, functional WinterGrip technology to the outsole,” said Sam Breese, head of product in the Americas.
