Dr Martens launches The Clash collab

Oct 4, 2022

Rebellious attitudes are part of their joint DNA. So a collaboration between footwear brand Dr Martens and British 70s punk band The Clash seems only fitting.

Dr Martens x The Clash

Under the heading “46 years in the making”, the “footwear artisan” is paying homage to one of the “greatest bands in British history” with a tribute ‘Made in England’ footwear collection “enriched with honorary detailing”. 

Available in two styles (the 1460 8-eye boot and the 1461 3-eye shoe), they come in both glossy Arcadia leather and a smooth black base. The former is equipped with rub-away uppers, revealing ‘Cherry Red’ and deep green underlayers “that symbolise The Clash’s Sandinista! and self-titled record artwork. 

Additionally, all pairs see The Clash branding stamped on the heel, accompanied by a set of dog tags and an assortment of seven lace options. 

To celebrate the collection, director, DJ and musician Don Letts has collated a playlist of songs to tell the story of the band from his perspective as their long-time collaborator. ‘The Story of The Clash in 100 Tracks’ is a mix of cuts from the band’s albums and solo careers, as well as music that inspired them and artists inspired by them.

The Dr Martens x The Clash footwear collection launches on 6 October via the Dr Martens website while the playlist will drop on Spotify and through Dr Martens’ channels at the same time..
