The Vintage Rose Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye Boot is this season’s take on our world-renowned floral prints. With this women's boots traditional, vintage-inspired designs, it offers a distinctly feminine, soft spin on the classic 8-eye boot. The upper and sole are sewn together, not merely glued, like many footwear constructions. This, together with a Z welt-stitch and heat-sealing process, makes it unique to Dr. Martens. The original Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole provides underfoot comfort and durability since 1960. It is oil- and fat-resistant, tough and offers good abrasion and slip resistance. Both feminine and tough, the Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye Boot will see you through your day in style and comfort.
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.

Regardless, they will stretch, so I am totally fine with the tightness right now. The shoes are BEAUTIFUL. I have worn them for a few hours and already received compliments. They look great with black slacks if you're thinking about wearing them with a work outfit. Dr. Martens boots make a statement, and these will not disappoint.
They are canvas and when they first arrived they were a bit stiff. This went away after 2-3 wears.
If you have really high arches you might want to go for one size larger as they can cut across the top of your foot. But this also relaxes with wear.
The soles are so comfy, I spend whole days on my feet and they feel so much better than wearing flats.
And now I'm seeing that everyone is having an issue - and one is always worse than the other. If you have thin feet, try them! Worth it! They are really cute. Compliments constantly!
