2.0 out of 5 stars Too stiff, December 12, 2008
This review is from: Dr. Martens Men's 1460 Classic Boot (Apparel)
These Docs are so stiff that they are uncomfortable. I have several pair of vintage Docs and they are all excellent quality supple leather. These feel really inferior and were not made in England like all of my others.
They look really cool, but I would definitely not recommend them.

I agree. They are way too stiff. My poor girl went to the mall and she came back with really bad sore feet. Go figure, made in China. What happend to Dr. Martens?

How is it that not one of the negative reviews come from verified purchases, and all of them go like "Dem chinamen are taking OUR JERBS"?

I don't know. My negative review came from a verified purchase. I'm not going around badmouthing these boots because they are simply made in China, but fact is, a lot of goods out of China are of poor quality. Nationality does mean something when looking at goods. I do stay away from some Chinese goods, but this doens't imply discriminatory purchasing practices towards Asian made products. I own a Japanese car. In fact, I prefer Japanese automotives over all other because of their reputable reliability and solid design. I respect Japanese engineering because they do make a great car and do not harbor any resentments that the Japanese auto industry took a huge chunk of US sales. It is capitalism pure and simple. I am not resentful over US jobs going to China. That is how a free market works and I'll abide by it. But as in any free market, consumers have to choose between prices and quality. The made in China label does bring with it both good and bad vibes, and a lot of the goods imported are of inferior quality. I didn't read a single "takin our jobs" review. That sort of stuff is best left for another format anyhow. This is about a brand of boot with the made in China label not being of the same quality as the made in England or made in Thailand label.

You have to break them in. I did not buy my docs from Amazon but still. My boots were pretty stiff at first but after daily wear and such, they are now very comfortable. Hope I helped.

you do realized that it's a capitalism pure market and the factories in China produce whatever they are asked to made. I doubt that if you would say your iPhones,iPads and Macs are of inferior quality and yet they are all made in China. By the end of the day, you just get what you have paid for.

Dr Martens are made in: Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and China. Nothing wrong with them at all. The English made ones are double and nearly triple the price...
