(replaced) The New Icon 7 boot from Dr. Martens works harder as you do. This stylish work boot has everything you need to make your days easier. It has a fully waterproof nubuck upper, a steel cap that will withstand 75-ft-1bf (foot pounds) with impact velocity of 117 -/-2.1 in/sec with a minimum of 16/32 in clearance, and is electric static dissipative. Comfort features include a removable cushioned sockliner, ultra-soft linings, and a seven eyelet closure for securing your best fit. From the Manufacturer It all began near Munich, Germany in 1945 when Dr. Klaus Maertens injured his foot in a skiing accident in the Bavarian Alps. To make walking easier during the healing process, he designed a shoe with an air-cushioned sole. Using old rubber tires, he constructed soles that had air trapped within closed compartments. He showed his prototype to his engineer/inventor friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, and together they decided to develop and produce the shoes. Not only did the shoe solve the doctor's immediate problem, but it also started to sell well in Germany. By 1959 the two founders decided that they needed a company to produce and distribute the shoes, then called Dr. Maertens, in other parts of the world. At first, many manufacturers rejected the concept of an air cushioned sole as a short-lived gimmick. However, the R. Griggs Group, located in the village of Wollaston in England, decided to go along with the idea by creating the first work boot with the revolutionary sole. On the first of April 1960, the first cherry red eight-eyelet work boot was produced and named 1460 (1/4/60). To sell the brand name better in England, the name was anglicized to Dr. Martens. The range was branded AirWair and the rest is history.
