The Creeper collection is a vintage style with its origins in post-War Teddy Boys, yet has since been adopted by subcultures such as ska, punk, psychobilly and even splinter groups of Japanese gothic. This perennial favourite is re-invented here on the thinner V14 sole with a slightly pointed toe, and split into two threads. This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This, together with our Z welt-stitch and heat-sealing process, makes it unique to Dr. Martens. It also has the original Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole, providing underfoot comfort and durability since 1960. It is oil and fat resistant, tough, and offers good abrasion and slip-resistance.
