The latest release maintains Dr. Martens signature silhouette featuring smooth matte black leathers, Goodyear welt stitching, and Air Wair tags while introducing new subtle elements. A hidden ankle zipper is introduced to the laterals for easy entry and removal and the top eyelets appear in gold. A leather strap runs around the top opening and a semi-translucent clear sole unit elevates the pairs.
The Yohji Yamamoto x Dr. Martens 1490 Hidden Zip is now available at Dr. Martens SHOWROOM TYO concept store and select stores across Japan for ¥77,000 JPY (approximately $667 USD).
