This is a women's specific version of the most iconic boot by Dr. Martens. The 1460 is named after the date that the first pair of Dr. Martens came off the assembly line-April 1, 1960. This boot is ready to wear out of the box. The Virginia leather is soft and supple. We love that it is low maintenance and has virtually no break in. It pairs well with jeans, leggings, or the right skirt or dress. There's just so many ways to wear it.
