Happy Year of the Rabbit!

Hype surrounding British boot brand Dr. Martens is currently at an all-time high. With major collaborations from the likes of A-COLD-WALL*, BAPE, and Rick Owens over the past few months, there's really no questioning why the the heritage label has suddenly become so popular. With the Lunar New Year come up just around the corner, Dr. Martens has released a very special collection that will let you celebrate the Year of the Rabbit in style.

Featuring the brand's flagship 1460 8-eye boot and 1461 3-eye oxfords, both pairs are outfitted in slick black leather throughout with elements painted in the traditional Chinese color of luck. The heels are covered in a series of D-rings for a rugged look and feel, and character engraved charms can be found on the zip of the 1460 and the dubrae of the 1461. Both models boast eyelets that have been touched up in gold for a prosperous vibe, and they sit on top of full rubber midsoles that are as comfortable as they come.

Set to drop very soon, the Dr. Martens Chinese New Year Collection should not be missed. Let us know what you think of this premium pack, and in related news, the Air Jordan 1 Low OG "Year of the Rabbit" is limited to just 5,000 pairs!
