We’ve been excited about the UNDERCOVER S/S19 collection ‘The New Warriors’ since its debut on the Paris Fashion Week runway in June 2018. Jun Takahashi’s latest vision draws inspiration from cult 70s movie The Warriors, with a concept that showcases eight distinctive fashion tribes as fictional gangs.
An integral element to the The New Warriors collection is the footwear UNDERCOVER worked on with Dr. Martens. Choosing the iconic 1460 8-eye boot and 1461 3-eye shoe as his platform, Jun Takahashi’s eye for detail and quality is evident throughout the collaboration. Exclusively MADE IN ENGLAND at our original Wollaston factory, the shoes are handcrafted in Smooth leather atop a vintage trans DMS sole, with a bespoke UNDERCOVER logo on the ankle and ‘The New Warriors’ lettering across the vamp.
Following our 4-way collaboration with UNDERCOVER/Supreme/Public Enemy in 2018, Dr. Martens are proud to continue our progressive partnership with Jun Takahashi on this exclusive new collection.
Both UNDERCOVER DM’s are available in a choice of Black, Cherry Red or Navy, and arrive packaged in a special dual-branded box with extra shoe laces.
