Brand details for
No one would have ever dreamed that the practical safety shoes from Dr. Martens would have ever risen to become the cult shoes of the wave and cult scene. A lot has changed, however, since the German inventor Dr. Klaus Maertens, designed a rugged prototype pair of work shoes with a rubber sole from army remnants shortly after World War II. In 1959, a British company bought the license to the label and changed the look to the now famous style with distinctive stitching and rugged leather covering. The once safety shoes popular among factory workers, postal workers, and police in the 60s was quickly discovered in the booming, English music scene in the late 70s. The classic "Docs" produced by Dr. Martens are still very successful, however, today the English brand offers many more new designs, ensuring that the spirit of the brand will carry on.

Martens are good!!
Although Doc Martens are no longer made in good old England, they are still very well made. Light shoes made of soft leather and comfortable to wear. Efficient delivery - they came within a few days! Well packed. I'm just wondering why these Doc Martens are still the same price as before now that they are made overseas and no longer in England?

everything was top notch
Picture-perfect, timeless shoes, great quality. And the fastest delivery time that I have ever experienced. Respect!! I got them a day earlier than I expected. Great!! Lovely packaging, I like attention to detail. Keep it up and I will too!

This pair of shoes is comfortable and I love their appearance. Don't use spray on them because the colour really faded!!!

very nice shoes…
…great service, thank you I'll come again! The shoes themselves are well made and look great. I didn't have to wear them in, which is unusual for Dr. Martens.
nathan From Manchester (05-Jun-2013)
Good shoes, but unfortunately the leather is a bit stiffer than the models made from smooth leather. Unfortunately one of the shoes really dug in, so I had to send the model back.
