At Dr. Martens, we never stop innovating. We’re always looking for the next thing that will make our footwear more comfortable, more resilient, more wearable. And this season, that ‘next thing’ happens to be Cubeflex.
Our new sole has been designed to absorb impact and provide real flexibility. The innovation comes from the multiple segmented cubes forming a grid pattern across the sole. Struggling to remember cubes from geometry class? We’ll give you the techy bit now…
The sole has been split into these cube segments to allow for greater movement. It’s the gaps between the cubes that allows for multi-directional mobility. Each cube can flex, tilt and adapt with every step you make. And with increased flexibility comes greater comfort. Plus, cushioning in the mid-sole and arch-support in the sockliner help provide all-day wearability.
Our Cubeflex design was originally developed as an industrial footwear technology, adopted by our collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto and is now incorporated into two of our ranges: the Lexington boot in fashion and Britton boot in our work category. While both have a slightly different style (the Lexington boot comes in three colourways) they are underpinned by the same groundbreaking, technological sole advancement.
