Key Continuity Lines.
The continuity items are manufactured all year, and are not subject to seasonal changes. They tend to reflect the core styles and values of the Dr Martens brand. Some of the designs stem from the originals made in April of 1960. DM tend to classify their items in a number of ways:
1. Overall style
2. Material type
Regarding Overall Style, these can be worded descriptions or code numbers. for example: Saxon or 1460z. Regarding material type, again the descriptions are necessarily straight forward - examples include: greasy; crazy horse; quilion; smooth; grizzly. These descriptions are emotive, and reflect textures as well as visuals. Color can be a physical color - e.g. "black", "Cherry" or more emotive - e.g. "oxblood" or "Aztec".
I am going to list now the key continuity lines and a description, based on the criteria set above.
Saxon Chelsea BootsBlack Greasy
Chelsea boots have gusset sides and no laces / eyelets. They are very popular and can be worn casually or more formally.
These have a 'greasy' leather texture and come in black.
Saxon Chelsea Boots
Aztec Crazy Horse
The same styles also come in a 6-eyelet boot:
Saxon 6-eyeblack greasy / Aztec Crazy Horse / Tan Wildhorse
Saxon 4 eye Chukka
Dark Brown Grizzly / Tan Grizzly / Black Grizzly
The grizzly relates to a rougher textured leather.
