Benefits of Goodyear Welt
Goodyear welt is a shoe construction in which the upper and sole of the shoe are stitched together for greater durability rather than glued. The resulting seam is visible and runs around the outside of the shoe, where the upper and outsole meet.
About Dr. Martens
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 (1/4/60). 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.

They are not in the same league, as when they were made in England. The cushion is gone, the interior of the leather is rough and stiff, as though the leather was never treated. Construction is solid and 'industrial' and I really LOVED my old pairs, which I wore for an average of 6 to 8 years. But these, for the price, will look good on you, and that's all. I gave mine away after trying to break them in for over 6 months and treating the leather with every kind of dressing I could. My old, old combat boots were easier to break in, many years ago.
My recommendation - if you like the goth / skins look, spend a few more bucks and get a seriously good boot that you can wear clubbing, biking or just hanging and chilling, and that will alsotreat your feet and legs with respect. If you want boots for work, for military, LEO or paintball, go with Original SWAT or Altama. If you just HAVE to have Doc Martens, then go ahead, but know in advance that you're gonna be hurting.
I felt compelled to write your company and tell you how extremely disappointed I am with the quality of your boots. I am 39 years old and when I was a kid your company was highly respected for making quality boots that lasted forever. Sadly your company has turned into a mockery of your once respected name.
As an adult I am required to wear steel-toe shoes due to insurance reasons where I work. However, I do not do any form of hard labor. I am an avionics technician. Several years ago, when my company mandated that the workers start wearing steel-toe shoes, we all sighed. However, my first thought was Dr. Martens. I immediately bought a pair of Dr. Martens 1919 which was perfect because although they were not truly safety rated boots they would pass our inspection for steel toe shoes and were not as bulky.
I wore those boots for about 3 and half years. I would have continued to wear them if it was not for the two holes that wore into each side of the one boot. Although I expected them to last longer I was not that upset since I almost got 4 years out of them. During my time of wearing them many of my co-workers thought the boots looked great and were impressed that they lasted so long and several of them bought Dr. Martens based on my experience. Mind you, there are 3000 employees that work at my company and we all hate steel-toe shoes and hate that we are being forced to wear them. Especially since the work we do does not risk our feet. So we are all always looking for better quality or lighter shoes.
After my experience, I decided to buy a pair of 8761's, they looked like they would last much longer and they cost even more money $140.00.Read more ›
Theae shoes (boots) have been designed and manufactured as, and, for use as FASHION FOOTWEAR ONLY. They are not for use as safety footwear, and should not under any circumstances be worn as safety footwear. .."
A warning is also stitched into the inside of the boot near the heal that reads "NON-SAFTY FOOTEAR"
I am a little let down that this fact is not listed in the products description. The reason I purchased these boots for work and they do not meet the required safety standard.
