DR. MARTENS CREEPERS: STEP OUT OF THE ORDINARY ERA-DEFYING EDGE

Creepers have been part of the Dr. Martens line-up for decades — always anchored by our renowned Dr. Martens sole and individual spirit. Our new collection showcases the flair and versatility of our creepers in all their forms. Era-defying edge. Ready for a new generation.

The campaign features Kadeem France and stylist Nadia Dahan. Nadia cut her teeth in Cardiff and London, and her work as a stylist is as inspired by music icons as by her family of “elaborately dressed, powerful Persian women”. As the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Loathe, Kadeem embodies the attitude and flair of the 70s and 80s subcultures who transformed the creeper into the genre-defying shoe it is today.

THE RAMSEY MONK KILTIE CREEPER

Update your line-up with new ways to stand out. We’ve reworked our Ramsey creeper in bold, unexpected shades of premium Desert Oasis suede from Leeds tannery C. F. Stead. The creeper has a Monk strap fastening and a matching suede kiltie. Detailed with classic detailing on the vamp and elevated on our cleated BEN outsole for amplified Dr. Martens attitude. Available in fondant pink, lime green, savannah tan, and black. Dropping in February.

ABOUT DR. MARTENS:

The first pair of Dr. Martens boots rolled off the production line on the 1st April 1960. With its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heel-loop, it was a boot for workers, initially worn by postmen and policemen; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to its competitors at the time. Throughout Dr. Martens history, the brand has been adopted and subverted by diverse individuals, musicians, youth cultures and tribes. These are the people who stand out from the crowd and their journey of self-expression has always been accompanied by a pair of DM’s.

The simple silhouette allows people to customise each pair; whilst on a utilitarian level their famous durability and comfort make them ideal footwear for the world of gigs and street fashion. On an emotional level, they are a flag of attitude and empowerment.

The Northamptonshire factory where it all began still exists to this day, in the village of Wollaston. A specific range of ‘Made In England’ products are manufactured here by a small, close-knit team of people schooled in traditional shoe-making and a process that hasn’t changed since our first pair six decades ago.
