Product Description

Dr. Martens is the stuff of legends. It all began near Munich, Germany in 1945 when Dr. Klaus Maertens injured his foot in a skiing accident in the Bavarian Alps. To make walking easier during the healing process, he designed a shoe with an air-cushioned sole. Using old rubber tires, he constructed soles that had air trapped within closed compartments. He showed his prototype to his engineer/inventor friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, and together they decided to develop and produce the shoes. Not only did the shoe solve the doctor's immediate problem, but it also started to sell well in Germany. By 1959 the two decided that they needed a company to produce and distribute the shoes, then called Dr. Maertens, in other parts of the world. At first, many manufacturers rejected the concept of an air cushioned sole as a short-lived gimmick. However, the R. Griggs Group, located in the village of Wollaston in England, decided to go along with the idea by creating the first work boot with the revolutionary sole. On the first of April 1960, the first cherry red eight-eyelet work boot was produced and named 1460. To sell the brand name better in England, the name was anglicized to Dr. Martens. The range was branded AirWair and the rest is history.

A classic style like the Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye Boot won't ever fail you. When you need style and comfort you can count on, turn to this Dr. Martens lace up ankle boot to get the job done. Set in a sleek pebbled leather upper, designed to resemble the leather used in flying jackets, with a slip-resistant outsole, you'll look sharp and stand steady. Lace up the Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye Boot for timeless style.

    This is my first pair of Dr. Martens, and I absolutely love them. People compliment on it whenever I wear them with black outfit, in order to let this pair of awesome shoes stand out (and they do!)

    The only problem I have with Doc Martens is their sizing. I wear a 5.5 in UK sizing, and I had to choose a 6 (which is HUGE; I could fit my thumb or more in the gap) or a 5 which would squish my toes. Eventually, I went for a size 6, and bought the comfort insole wearing either thick socks or two layers of cotton. It helped a lot and now the size 6 fits.

    When you wear the boots, you'd at least need to wear thick hiking socks to break into them, else face the consequences of multiple blisters (wearing regular socks, I had a huge blister on my right heel which popped, and I couldn't wear anything but flip-flops for a week.)

    In doubt with .5's , go up a size. Although (yes, they're leather) they'll loosen up someday, you won't be able to wear them for good periods of time. Boots are supposed to be "larger", anyway. Make sure they fit after getting the insoles and socks though; if they still don't work, that means the boots are too big for you and that you should go down a size.

    Absolutely LOVE my new boots! They fit beautifully and look incredibly cool. I've always loved DMs quality and these look like another great pair of boots which will last me for years. This style (union jack) seems to have a little more room in the instep, which is great if you have a high arch (like I do). Brilliant!!!

    I am a huge fan of Dr. Martens. By far the union Jack is my favorite pair. Being that I wear a 13 I thought they would look huge but actually they make my feet look smaller. Can't wait to rock them.

    These boots are amazing to look at. Every time I wear them I receive a ton of compliments! And yes, they are comfortable as well! As for the sizing, I would order 1-2 sizes smaller. I usually wear size 8, but after reading some reviews I did order a size down to a 7, but feel that a 6 would have worked as well!

    Highly recommended! I've watched these boots for about a year now and I finally decided to treat myself. I've never had a pair of Doc Martens, and I love these boots! They start out very VERY stiff and require thick socks to break them in. I also have large calves but skinny ankles, these boots hug every curve of my weirdly shaped feet.

    Love it!
    Although 1460 is unisex, but in my opinion, 1460 is for men, 1460 w is for women. Because 1460 is kind wide for women.

    -Style: A+
    The "Union Jack" boot looks fantastic. I wear them with jeans and they really pop.

    Break in Period: A
    I had no pain with these boots. I was most likely due to the size I got (US Men's 11)

    -Sizing: B
    The sizing is a bit off. The newer Dr. Martens tend to run smaller than I remember. I recently bought a size 10 in a 1460 boot Dr. Martens and they were killer on my feet! They were too short on the toes! My toes reached the end! So when I picked up the Union Jacks I decided to get a size 11 as there is no half sizes, but now they are too roomy, so an extra pair of socks helped.

    Also I have a pair of 20 year old Electric Blue UK Na-Na Dr. Martens in size 10 that fit perfect. So I'm not sure if it's the recent outsourcing that made the size discrepancies.

    On a foot scale I size at 9.5 on a men's sizing chart. Below are some other shoes that I wear to help you get an idea how they will fit.

    For PF Flyers, I fit perfect in a size US Men's 10
    For All-Stars, I fit perfect in US Men's 9
    For DCs, I fit perfect in a size US Men's 10
    For the newer Dr. Martens, size US Men's 10 the length is too short and a size US Men's 11 is just a tab on the loose size.

    -Final: A
    Overall, the Union Jacks are awesome. I'm just nick-picking on the size, but you should try on a pair in store before buying online to avoid having to return them. Also, you might need to add some silicone oil to the seam of the boot that meets the Goodyear-welted with the yellow stitching as they tend to squeak when you walk.
