Dr. Martens and Heaven by Marc Jacobs Join Forces For a New Generation of Mary Janes

Lean into ’90s grunge nostalgia.

Heaven by Marc Jacobs has partnered with iconic footwear brand Dr. Martens for a contemporary take on two classic DM silhouettes.

Reimagining the signature Mary Jane, the new shoe is inspired by the rugged nature of the ’80s and features the classic T-bar in smooth black leather, stacked on a 1.5 inch Bex outsole.  The silhouette gained popularity in the early 1900s and has since become a staple of modern day rebellion. Initially known as the first shoe worn by children and frequently by young girls, the shoe has transcended stereotypes and generations to become a subversive staple.

Alongside the popular school-shoe style, the collaboration sees Heaven’s Creative Director Ava Nirui reworking DM’s chunky Ricki Sandal. Constructed with supple Brando leather, the new version boasts adjustable straps and DM’s signature, yellow welt stitch. Complete with a brushed silver clasp that dons Heaven’s double-headed bear, the all-new Ricki is easier to slip on than ever before.

Staying true to Heaven’s binary-defying and forward-facing roots, the collection also aims to continue DM’s narrative of challenging conventional feminine style and leans into the distorted, femme edge synonymous with the ’90s.

The new Dr. Martens and Heaven silhouettes are available for purchase from the Dr. Martens website from June 6. For more from Marc Jacobs, check out the latest Heaven campaign.
