British footwear brand Dr. Martens recently teamed up with BT21 for a limited edition collection release.

K-pop supergroup BTS created BT21, a series of Line Friends (now IPX) characters back in 2017. They are a series of animated characters conceptualised by the septet.

The collection will include the footwear brand’s iconic 1460 8-eye boot, 1461 3-eye shoe, 2976 Chelsea boot, and a matching Box Backpack.

These shoes will include doodle-style illustrations of BT21 characters — such as Koya, RJ, Shooky, Mang, Chimmy, Tata, and Cooky. It adds a playful twist to Dr. Martens’ timeless classics.

And presents them in a new light, with a unique charm.

It’s a must-have for anyone who values self-expression and individuality.

Prior to the collaboration, BTS members are also fans of the British footwear brand. Sharp-eyed fans have previously caught them wearing Dr. Martens footwear for various shoots.
