Welcome to the new look of the Dr. Martens Chelsea boot. This is not a drill. Iconic Japanese designer and fashion forefather Yohji Yamamoto has unveiled his latest pursuit: another collaboration with UK brand Dr. Martens. We repeat, this is not a drill. This season, Doc Martens have given Yohji free reign and, in doing so, have created an updated, special edition Chelsea boot. As part of Yamamoto’s Y’s diffusion label Black, the black leather boot maintains the usual elasticised gussets and pull tabs, whilst adding at zipper at the heel for easy access. We’re obsessed.
You can buy a pair at the Y’s by Yohji Yamamoto website here. That’s if they aren’t already sold out.
