The Combs Tech II Utility is enhanced for evolved radicals and opens new horizons by reviving the rebellious way of life.

Dr. Martens introduces a new generation of silhouettes inspired by the brand’s core DNA. The Combs Tech II Utility is enhanced for new horizons and evolved radicals and everything that goes with them and may yet come.
If one shoe can not escape us, especially here in Berlin, it is the iconic Dr. Martens boot.

Looking back on a long history of being the go-to shoe brand for radical movers, rebels, and youth culture, Dr. Martens has become the one brand on everyone’s radar. Now, the brand debuts a fresh take on an established classic, evolving its utility line to introduce a new generation of silhouettes. 

When the German Dr. Klaus Märtens developed the first Dr. Martens seventy-four years ago, he had a resilient durable shoe for the working class in mind. The first pair of iconic boots with the yellow stitch, the characteristic sole recognisable from afar, and, of course, the well-known heel loop saw the light of day in early 1960. Soon, however, its functionality-focused design evolved to epitomise the spirit of the time: from punks and rebels to eco-movers, grunge kids and goths, the boots were worn as an embodiment of rebellious self-expression, laying the foundational values of the brand we know today. 

This Fall/Winter, Dr. Martens built a new pair of timeless boots to tie in with this history: The Combs Tech II. The style blends innovative functionality with the distinctive brand DNA, putting a military twist on the classic Dr. Martens 8-hole silhouette. A hybrid of Accord leather and Poly Ripstop as well as a quick-release strap make for a utilitarian appearance and comfortable mobility. Priming wearers for the fickle fall weather, the 3.98CM Tract outsole improves traction through deep indentations. The shoes are delivered in a natural tone palette and a timeless design offering a twist to everyday life.

But the Combs Tech boot is no stranger. This redesigned version  reflects the brand’s approach to growing with its wearers while sustaining what is familiar: defying the norm, being unapologetically authentic, and breathing rebellious self-expression. Thus, the Combs Tech II is not solely a fall boot. It is to break new ground, explore what lies beyond, and embrace what may yet come.
