Shoe company Dr. Martens has collaborated with BTS on a special collection that aims to take any ARMY’s love for the K-pop boy band to the next level.
The collaboration, which was released on Thursday, includes the British label’s 1460 and 1461 boots, its 2976 boot and its mini backpack decorated with colorful doodles of the BT21 characters, a collaborative project between BTS and Line Friends.
“Dr. Martens have always played on the lines between art, music and style. … Our new collaboration with BT21 celebrates this fluid approach to art in a collision of music, illustrations, bold colors and timeless silhouettes,” Dr. Martens’ website states.
According to the iconic footwear brand, every item in the new collection includes “a mix of our classic black Smooth leather and Arcadia – a rub-off material that will change color and add character the more you wear it” and accents with “bold purple details alongside our signature yellow markings.”
BTS fans interested in owning the special accessories can expect to shell out between $140 and $190.
Due to high demand, however, they currently appear to be unavailable in the U.S.
