For British shoe brand Dr. Martens, three’s company.

The legendary label is introducing the third installment in its 1460 remastered boot series with the March 28 launch of a three-way collaboration with Beams, an edgy Japan-based men’s clothing retailer, and Babylon, a Los Angeles-based apparel label founded by the lead singer of punk band Trash Talk.

The single style, inspired by the Ska movement of the ‘60s, blends a West Coast alternative skate aesthetic with a futuristic Japanese lens, updates the boot with Beams’ signature orange for the double stripes down the heel, laces, heel loop and welt stitching. The boot also features a triple-branded circle lace charm and is embossed with “Chaos” — a Babylon slogan — on the quarters.

The collaboration coincides with the shoe company’s 60th anniversary since it was launched on April 1, 1960. Originally intended as a boot for workers, worn by postal workers and police officers, it was soon adopted by the youth culture, musicians and the punk movement.

Dr. Martens, known for its collaborations, has teamed up with Raf Simons, New York designer Jonathan Cohen and Japanese label Undercover, among others. It is also a favorite with celebrities, including Gigi Hadid.
