DR. MARTENS AND THE GREAT FROG PRESENT THEIR NEW COLLABORATION
ANTIDOTES TO THE MAINSTREAM — DR. MARTENS PARTNERS WITH SUBCULTURAL LONDON JEWELLERS THE GREAT FROG FOR A HARDWARE-HEAVY COLLECTION
The Great Frog’s handmade, gothic designs have been inspired and adopted by rock ‘n’ roll royalty ever since the London jeweller opened its doors on Carnaby Street in 1972. For 50 years, The Great Frog has adorned the hands, necks and wrists of subcultural rebels and outlaws. Now their dark metal aesthetic collides with two countercultural Dr. Martens silhouettes.
Music and rebellion are stitched into Dr. Martens boots as deeply as they are engraved in The Great Frog’s statement jewellery — and the two brands share an unmistakable cross-section of wearers. For the first time, we’ve collaborated on a hardware-inspired collection that spans our Original 1460 8-eye boot and renowned Jadon platform boot to pay homage to our shared history of disruption.
The 1460 TGF boot stays close to our roots — packed with instantly-recognisable DM’s DNA, with elevated customsilver detailing. The boot is built from supple black Oily Illusion leather with a The Great Frog branded deboss on the outside quarter. We’ve elevated the eyelets with branded brushed silver, the tongue is punched with a brushed silver rivet, and the laces are fitted with a crossbones charm. The boots remain true to six decades of durable DM’s construction: built on a smoke DMS outsole, secured with yellow welt stitching and tagged with a black and yellow heel loop.
For nearly 10 years, our Jadon platform boot has been a go-to silhouette for bold non-conformists and musicians — and it makes the perfect canvas for a punk-inspired, hardware-heavy takeover. The Jadon TGF is built from the same supple black Oily Illusion leather and is fitted with a custom harness with deboss-branded straps. The boot is adorned with brushed silver buckles and studs, and the zip has a custom crossbone pull. The Jadon TGF is designed for maximum impact and stands on our towering 2” Quad Retro sole secured with yellow welt stitching.
The collection drops in August and will be available at drmartens.com and selected partners.
