Tweaking a classic.
Linking up for a new collaboration, Stüssy and Dr.Martens follow up their Penton Loafer capsule with a new tweaked version of the classic Dr.Martens 8053 silhouette.
Reworked with Stüssy’s aesthetics, the 8053 features a protective Snowplow leather that’s inspired by hiking, with padded upper collars, thick rope laces and a silver-hardware on the eyelets. Reinforced with a double-stitched heel counter, the shoe includes a new hybridized PVC “Watergrip” rubber midsole that’s equipped with open slots for extra traction and debris cleaning. Marking the reunion of the two brands, the 8053 is detailed with subtle co-branded tabs which sit on the shoe’s throat line.
Dropping on both the Stüssy and the Dr.Martens website, you’ll be able to shop the Stüssy x Dr.Martens 8053 HY’s on December 13th. See the shoe campaign in the images below:
