Dr. Martens Lite

Sep 1, 2016

In a somewhat unprecedented and unexpected move, Dr. Martens – the steadfast footwear brand widely popular with youth subcultures since the 1960s – has released a new series of ‘Lite’ shoes and boots. Though they feature much of the brand’s signatures styling, such as their yellow welted stitching, heel loop, and grooved soles, these new boot varieties mark a much-needed revitalization of the iconic brand. We’re sure there are going to be plenty of purists out there who are not fond of this evolutionary step, but we are quite happy with the new offerings.

These new boots and shoes, which come in any of five different styles and a number of different colors, are still made with a premium leather upper – as Dr. Martens has been offering for the entirety of their existence – but the outsoles are now made from lightweight flexible rubber, which offers up the same iconic look but in a much more manageable package. And every pair comes with DM’s trademarked SoftWair memory foam insoles with moisture-wicking technology for the utmost in comfort and wearability. You can get a pair of these reimagined classics starting at only $105. [Purchase]
