Named after the date of its creation, 1st April, 1961, our 1461 shoe has become iconic. Originally sold as a durable working man’s shoe, in the 70s and 80s the style became popular with political protesters, and as a fashion item at universities across Britain. Today it’s worn as a symbol of rebellious self-expression by individuals from all walks of life.
This 1461 shoe stays true to the original and features a hardwearing premium leather upper, classic 3-eye fastening and Dr. Martens durable welted construction, finished with our ultra comfortable AirWair technology and slip-resistant sole.
- 3-eye unisex style
- Made with classic Docs DNA, including grooved edges and original durable leather
- Constructed on the iconic and comfortable Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
Clean away dirt using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr.Martens Wonder Balsam, Neutral or coloured wax polish as appropriate, using a Dr.Martens shoe brush, (Neutral can be applied to all colours). Allow to dry, then buff vigorously to desired shine using a second clean Dr.Martens shoe brush. (We advise to use 2 brushes per colour, one to add the polish and the second, clean dry brush, to buff up the leather for the best results).
