When you can shop the Dr. Martens x Hello Kitty line
All your favourite footwear staples get an adorable revamp in this new collection.
Ten years after its first collaboration, footwear label Dr. Martens has once again teamed up with our favourite Japanese cartoon cat, Hello Kitty. With both brands set to commemorate their 60th birthdays this year, a limited edition line seems to be the celebration of choice, and we're more than happy to see it happen.
Release date: 6 March (UK)
Where to buy: Dr. Martens
Taking on some of the most iconic Docs silhouettes, the line sees the adorable feline featured on a selection of boots, loafers and sandals. The Jadon boot keeps its usual black leather upper but sees two different kitty motifs featured on either side. The eyelets have been updated to heart shapes, while black and white laces round out the design.
The iconic 1461 boot arrives with asymmetrical heart designs featuring Hello Kitty and her sister, Mimmy. A pair of vegan platform sandals also gets a Kitty-themed revamp, with the usual black design decorated with red bows and a Kitty head chained around the straps.
In addition to the footwear staples, there are also two pairs of kiddie's boots up for grabs, along with a heart-shaped shoulder bag and two adorable pairs of socks that you'll want to get your hands on immediately.
The Hello Kitty range is set to drop first in the UK on 6 March, though we're hoping to see it on the Australian Dr. Martens site shortly after.
While the brands may seem at odds with one another, the punk-goes-cute approach has worked for Dr. Martens in the past. Previous collaborations with labels like Lazy Oaf have flown off the shelves, proving that adorably chunky silhouettes are right on-trend.
