Free Dr Martens Customisation at Chadstone

To celebrate one of its iconic designs turning 60, the footwear brand is offering free customisations by two Melbourne artists.

Dr Martens boots and shoes come in different shapes and sizes, but if you want to breathe new life into your favourites, an artist will paint new designs – from swirly lines and abstract shapes to florals and line art – on them for you.

French-born artist Lucy Lucy is known for her murals, but on Saturday June 12 she'll be downsizing to the much smaller canvas of your Docs. And Hannah Rae Powell's flowy figures usually touch on ideas of mental health and spirituality – she'll be painting shoes and boots on Friday June 18.

The free customisations are part of celebrations for the 60th anniversary of Dr Martens's iconic 1461 shoe. Customised pairs by Powell, Lucy and two other artists (Kentaro Yoshida and Tom Brolga) will also be on display at the pop-up site.

From 11am to 4pm on June 12, and from 4pm to 9pm on June 18.
