The street style of AAPE by A Bathing Ape merges with the classic heritage of Dr. Martens in a unique collaboration.


Since its birth in 2012, AAPE has been forging its identity with iconic and recognisable elements that have marked new generations. Drawing inspiration from pop and Japanese culture, the brand has redesigned the classic Dr. Martens 1461 model, the renowned 3 eyelet silhouette with over 60 years of history.

A new version is available in two colours: black and olive green. They include the AAPE logo and the phrase “Somewhere in the AAPE universe” on the upper part of the toe cap. It is complemented by a back strap with “AAPE UNVS” lettering, the familiar yellow stitching, the classic heel loop and a two-tone label celebrating the collaboration.


The new Dr. Martens x AAPE 1461 will be available from 16 September on the British brand’s website and in selected AAPE shops.
