The Monkey Boot

Manufactured at Dr. Martens original Cobbs Lane factory in
Northamptonshire in the late 1970s. Monkey Boots date back to the 1940s, when they were standard issue for the Czechoslovakian army in the Second World War. The distinctive sole pattern and durable construction meant these boots were hard-wearing, while the various oval stitching patterns and slender silhouette were different to other boots available at the time.

The Capper Boot

First manufactured in the mid-70s at Dr. Martens original Cobbs Lane factory in Northamptonshire. The Capper Boot is a distinctive Dr. Martens product, originally launched with brass eyelets, triple yellow stitching on the uppers, off-white binding around the top, a DMS sole pattern and the stamped, gold name and logo on the ankle. The construction and sturdy design was based directly on working men’s boots of the 50s and 60s.
