Following last year’s Sex Pistols collaboration, Dr. Martens is paying tribute to the band’s infamous Bill Grundy interview with its newest capsule.
As the Sex Pistols tore into television host Bill Grundy live on-air in 1976, with obscene four-letter words, the UK spiraled into outrage and left Thames Television’s phone lines jammed for hours with complaints. The ‘Filth and the Fury’ was the headline that helped catapult the Pistol’s career into the limelight, while simultaneously ending Grundy’s.
This new collection takes the infamous ‘Filth and the Fury’ newspaper headline and prints it onto classic Dr. Martens’ silhouettes.
The brand’s 1461 shoe is printed with the front pages that subsequently dominated the British media. Detailed with historical punk imagery and the headlines that documented the day punk blew up, it’s decked out with a black heel loop, sole and laces.
The 1460 boot comes in sleek, black milled smooth leather. Emblazoned with ‘Sex Pistols’, ‘Anarchy’ and ‘God Save The Queen’ lettering across the upper, it’s finished off with a black heel loop, white stitching, and black laces.
The collection is now available at drmartens.com.
