Dr. Martens 1461 E.H. Suede Shoes. The 1461 was the first shoe we ever produced, way back when in 1961. This minimalist edition comes in all-over black mono without compromising on Docs DNA: visible welt stitching and grooved edges. The shoes are welted on our signature air-cushioned sole. Just as they have been for nearly six decades. Second off the DM’s production line, the 1461 is a 3-eye shoe championed for its versatility. Our Goodyear-welted lines are heat-sealed at 700°C and reinforced with our signature welt stitch. Imported.
