Marc Jacobs celebrates 60th anniversary of the 1460 boots

Dr. Martens is celebrating its 60th anniversary of its iconic 1460 boots and is launching its second collaboration with Marc Jacobs. The new collaboration celebrates the grunge style reinvented with a special color and extra embellishments.

The Dr. Marten boots made in the UK are synonymous as being a symbol of rebellion that is a common factor in the Marc Jacob brand as well. Marc Jacobs is known for the avente-garde but has ties to the grunge movement during his early years working as the creative director Perry Ellis in the early 1990s.

Jacobs created one of the first collections inspired by the grunge music on the runway for the Spring-Summer 1993 collection. Jacobs was only 27-years-old when he did his first collaboration with Dr. Marten and created a unique pair of the classic 1460 boots.

Marc Jacobs reinvented the classic 1460 boots that are made of vegan leather in a deep brown with purple tones and a ton of embellishments hanging on gold chains. The shoe will feature the iconic yellow stitching with a special tag with the Dr. Martens 60 Years logo and the Marc Jacobs logo above the shoelaces.

The new shoes will be available for sale starting on September 26.
