A-COLD-WALL* and Dr. Martens Rework the 1461 Bex in Black

Samuel Ross‘ A-COLD-WALL* and the British footwear brand Dr. Martens are back for their third team-up, this time around giving the 1461 Bex silhouette that it dropped in “Graphite” back in August a black makeover.

In many ways, the upcoming pair is like a combination of the 1460 that it first released in July 2020 and the aforementioned 1461 Bex “Graphite.” It too features a split, folded tongue section, however updating the new black iteration is a set of laces as the “Graphite” pair only came with a zipper.

However, the tongue section is locked to the upper using metal rivets and a heavy presence of top stitching, and elements such as the ACW* bracket logo also appear on the shoe’s upper — yet this time around, it’s printed onto the mid-panel, rather than being stamped on the rear-quarter heel section like the former 1461 Bex.

Rounding out the shoe’s design is a sole unit that’s quintessentially Dr. Martens. Appearing in a semi-translucent clear rubber tone, the ribbed AirWair-equipped piece is contrasted with the brand’s iconic yellow double-welt stitching that runs along a black bumper.

The A-COLD-WALL* x Dr. Martens 1461 Bex in black is set to release at 3 p.m. GMT (11 a.m. EDT) on November 4 on ACW’s website, before a wider release is set to come on November 6 on Dr. Martens’ online store. The pair will cost $230 USD.
