The iconic footwear brand has partnered with the British engraver King Nerd. This new collaboration brings Dr. Martens and the master engraver together for the first time, the collaboration features Dr. Martens original silhouettes with gold and silver engraved metallic accents celebrating boots with a distinctive imprint.
Johnny Dowell, also known as King Nerd, began his journey by studying Art with the plan of one day studying Fashion at Central Saint Martins and quickly worked his way from apprentice to world-renowned master engraver in just under 15 years. The artistic freedom he was granted from a young age has manifested itself amongst the engraving scene’s most intricate designs and changing the face of engraving by fusing his DIY-style illustrative designs with traditional handcraftsmanship on his one-of-a-kind pieces.
Luxury watches, Cameras, Pistols, Motorbikes and now the iconic Dr. Martens shoes and boots, King Nerd has made his mark on featuring metal plates and a toe cap bolted to the 1460 Leather Lace Up Boot and 1461 Leather Oxford Shoe.
