The North Face & Dr. Martens Redefine Premium With The ‘9 Tie’ Boot

It’s no secret that 2019 has been a year of epic proportions, especially when it comes to industry-defining projects. But if you haven’t had your daily dose of brand envy, don’t fret — the year of heavy-handed collaborations isn’t over. The North Face Purple Label has announced a partnership with established footwear manufacturer, Dr. Martens, to bring the masses one of the most attractive boots on the market.

The North Face Purple Label isn’t a stranger to the realm of high-end fashion essentials, creating a bevy of luxurious offerings for individuals looking to take their functional streetwear game to an entirely new level. Now, the company has joined forces with Dr. Martens for the “9 Tie” boot — a premium suede offering that marries the companies’ most recognizable design terminologies. The 9 Tie arrives in either black or beige and boasts enhanced leather paneling, three pairs of eyelet hooks, and tonal rings to set it apart from the space’s other offerings, while a soft and supple suede upper provides the perfect foundation for Dr. Marten’s signature “AirWair” pull tab, and embroidery. To give the boot even more visual acuity, the brands have introduced subtle purple accents throughout, making these tasteful examples a must-have pair for any fashion-forward guy. Head to Nanamica’s website on November 9 to pick up a pair of your own for $366.
