Dr. Martens has just announced a collaboration with the late, boundary-breaking artist, Keith Haring.

Regardless of whether Keith Haring is household name to you, you’ve most likely encountered his colorful cartoonish graphics. Spotted everywhere from t-shirts, to sides of buildings, to keyrings, Haring has had an exceptional impact on the art community. The New York-based artist has had a career deeply rooted in social activism, spending most of his time fighting against convention and continuously questioning authority, while preserving the upbeat authenticity of his artwork.

As we enter 2021, his legacy continues to shine, this time on four new pairs of Dr. Martens. The first collaboration between the two includes the classic 1460 boot in adult and kids styles, as well two styles of the 1461, each detailed with Haring’s instantly recognizable designs and characters.

The 1460 boot, along with the two colorways of the 1461 shoe, are constructed with smooth leather. The 1460 boot is enhanced with black graphics detailing the upper, completed with a strip of bold and colorful figures on the heel. The first pair of the 1461 shoe gives ode to Haring’s ‘angelic baby’ designs with white coloring. The second is an all-over print featuring the iconic characters. Kids sizing of the 1460 boot is constructed of soft Hydro leather featuring bat graphics, a cartoon dog on the lace charm, and an illustrated sock liner.

The Dr. Martens x Keith Haring collaboration will release on January 22nd at select retailers and drmartens.com. Prices range from $130 to $160 for adult sizing and $65 to $90 for kids.
