Dr. Martens 1490 BEX Black Smooth Mid Calf
To celebrate 60 years of Dr. Martens, we’ve taken an Original and rebuilt it on a Goodyear welted, stacked Bex sole. The 1490 Bex Black Smooth is a 10-eye boot that’s loaded with ready-for-anything attitude. The boots are crafted from tough Smooth leather and built with DM’s-branded AirWair eyelets.
- The 1490 is the archetypal Docs boot. Created to conform. And worn by those who don’t
- Hardwearing and famously tough, our Smooth leather can be polished to shine or scuffed-up. It’s up to you. Clean with a damp cloth and care with Dr. Martens Shoe Polish
- Our Goodyear-welted lines are heat-sealed at 700°C and reinforced with our signature welt stitch
Durable and famously stiff to start, our Smooth Leather can be polished to a dapper shine or artfully scuffed-up depending on your preference. Restores and rejuvenates with no polish or shine: our Wonder Balsam is formulated to keep leather strong and supple, and ensure your boots last even longer.
Clean footwear using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam. Allow to dry, then buff vigorously to desired shine using clean Dr. Martens shoe brush. Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam is designed to bring well-worn footwear back to its best. Our balsam wax nourishes leather — keeps it supple, strong and smooth. Used regularly, it will prolong the life of your footwear.
