Dr. Martens has drawn on over half a century of boot making experience for its Industrial Range of footwear. Technology has developed considerably over the last few decades but the premise for what is required has remained the same: comfort, protection and durability.
Incorporating style into the equation comes naturally to Dr. Martens and some of its key designs take pointers directly from the fashion lines. The result is a collection of rugged, versatile work boots that combine all the necessary safety elements with authentic Dr. Martens styling for a genuine multi-purpose offering, looking good both in and out of work.
The boots are graded SB (safety basic) through to the high spec S3 but all have safety toecaps and slip resistant outer soles. The insoles are designed specifically to provide extra cushioning and include superior shock absorption properties to ensure comfort.
At one end of the scale is the safety basic boot, Tred 7A52, a classic hiker style work boot with heavy duty metal fastenings, available in both Teak and Black.
Two S1 boots have been designed specifically for women; these are built on a woman’s last for accurate sizing and an improved fit. It means that the footwear is true to normal sizing – rather than scaling down the size of a man’s boot. Izzy is a contemporary styled chukka safety boot available in Black and Teak whilst Rosa is a faux-fur lined, pull-on rigger boot in Teak.
Where more protection is required S3 boots, Forge and Thorpe, are loaded with safety features including a puncture-resistant midsole, water resistant leather upper and an anti-static construction. Forge is a 6 eye boot designed with real Dr. Martens heritage, available in Black and Gaucho; Thorpe is a traditionally style safety boot available in Black or Honey.
