In February of this year, we received an email from Accent Group with a proposed partnership between Pride Foundation Australia and Dr Martens in the anticipation of their recently released 1461 PRIDE Smooth Boot. The team at Dr Martens have kindly pledged $10 from every sale of their 1461 PRIDE Smooth Boot to Pride Foundation Australia through until the end of June.
Rather than timing this release in line with one of the many LGBTQIA+ focused events throughout the year, Dr Martens have released the new boot on their own schedule alongside the message “Proud all year round, not just for a day.”
“At Dr. Marten’s, we stand proud with the LGBTQ+ community. This new one-off shoe pays tribute to the Pride movement with rainbow flag embroidery and a rainbow lace and heel loop, as well as multi-coloured tonal stitching through the uppers.”
Thank you Accent Group and Dr Martens!
