Outdoor boot collection
18 September 2017
Footwear brand Dr. Martens' new Modern Outdoor range has been specifically designed to offer workers immediate work boot comfort and allow for a seamless transition when replacing boots.
The new collection comprises of two designs including Ridge ST and Grapple ST. Ridge ST S3 is a 6-tie hiker boot with water-resistant, rich, oiled leather uppers. It features a steel toe cap, anti-penetration midsole and anti-static properties.
The padded tongue and collar provide impressive cushioning and a SoftWair memory-foam footbed, with Agion anti-bacterial properties further enhancing the internal comfort. The flexible, lightweight and cushioning EVA midsole is cemented to a Nitrile rubber compound outsole delivering high slip- and heat resistance.
Grapple ST is a 6-tie, lightweight lace-to-toe work hiker in soft industrial grade tumbled leather uppers, and features an internal steel toe cap, padded collar and bellows tongue.
Both boots include an X-shaped shank that has been engineered to deliver stability and control, without compromising under-foot flexibility. Superior lateral support is provided in the arch-region. Graduated flex matches the foot’s natural movement.
Global category manager at Dr. Martens, Jon Marchant, said: “We have identified in the workplace that an athletic style boot is now trending amongst workers who are seeking all day comfort so we decided to service that requirement in our latest industrial collection, whilst also offering varying standards of protection. Ultimately, we want to ensure our customers can completely focus on the job at hand, instead of worrying about their feet.”
