A rugged take on our classic Dr. Martens, the Ben collection offers excellent levels of support, comfort and durability. This shoe features the original Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole, providing underfoot comfort and durability since 1960. It is oil and fat-resistant, touch and offers good abrasion and slip resistance. 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.
