Californian film and entertainment company Warner Bros. is the latest to embark upon a sartorial collaboration with Dr. Martens. A fitting partnership between two legacy brands that have developed deep fanbases and elaborate subcultures through the decades.
The collection champions the rejection of the mainstream while celebrating divergent cult classics and icons of ‘80s cinema. A dedicated style has been adapted for three select Warner Bros. films: ‘The Goonies’, ‘Beetlejuice’ and ‘The Lost Boys’.
For the 1988 classic ‘Beetlejuice’, The 1461 shoe has been painted with a Betelgeuse snake print and enamel lace charms before being finished with a printed sock liner, graphic laces and coloured sole pads.
The 1461 received a second makeover for 1987s ‘The Lost Boys’. Crafted in croc-embossed leather with vampire teeth lace charms and hardware, the shoe is printed with ‘LOST BOYS’ on the sole pads and vamps finished with digitally printed linings.
The 1460 boot has been redesigned for 1985’s hit ‘The Goonies’. The shoe is debossed with a skull pattern inspired by the film and finished with a map print sock liner and ‘NEVER SAY DIE’ printed backstraps and a skull lace charm.
