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.

Unfortunately the older model which is very similar to this one is discontinued. The only difference is the older one had the speed laces throughout instead of just the top 2 on this particular model.
However I'm not going to give it less than 5 stars for these boots is just plain awesome.
It is a bit on the heavy side but if you pair this with some gel inserts it would be like walking on cloud. There is a little bit of breaking in involve but if you wear thick socks or double up for the first week or so you'll be fine.
The brown color is my color of choice for it goes well with jeans but the black is nice too ( I have both) The gold stitching is a great accent regardless of which color you choose.
I just hope Docs don't discontinue this model for I will keep buying them whenever I need new boots.
I wear a size 9 m in mens and I usually buy wider shoes. There was only one option with these so I went with the size 9 which are the same as my other Docs. When I got them in and put them on I was worried they wouldn't fit because they were extremely tight. I wore them around without tying them and they loosened up enough to feel comfortable tying them.
After almost a week and a half of wearing these boota, they fit perfect and are really comfortable. They are softening up and are starting to feel like a pair of sneakers. My pinky toe is behind the edge of the toe box and there is plenty of room up front where other boots would taper and choke your toes.
I gave them 4 stars only because I don't know how long they will last, but so far I am enjoying them.
The great thing about those is that they look good, provide protection and were cheaper than everywhere else. The soles stop nails before they might pierce your foot and steel toes are hard but do not feel that heavy. They are water resistant up to the shoe tongue and that's very good for most of day to day work/activities
Tips of boot scratch very easily,the very first day already couple scratches and scuffs appeared. The reason is the material, it appears softer than it should/shouldn't be used for construction..
The sole provides great slip resistance but not on small iced surfaces like ice on plywood. Had to be super careful or a fall would happen very easily. Any regular running shoe or sports shoe provides better antislip on ice than this boot.
Another bad thing is that the material around the ankles should be little more reinforced. It feels too soft and few times could have twisted ankle while walking straight. Unacceptable for such reputable company.
Overall, I would try another design that is more sturdy
I've had these boots for just over a year now, and I absolutely hate them. In addition to the comments below they now a seam pulling apart on the right boot. The inside of the Heel on the left boot now has some material the is pulling apart which now is rubbing a raw spot on my heel.
I'll never buy another pair of DMs. I'm going to the Red Wing store this weekend.
I have had these for 10 months now and they have been pretty good so far with the exception of 2 issues I have.
1). I normally wear a size 8.5 so I bought a size 8. The fit of the boot is pretty good and I probably should have gotten the next size down, but the bigger problem is where the edge of the steel toe falls. It comes right across the middle knuckle of my big toe. This has caused calluses because of the rubbing when walking, kneeling at work. To deal with that issue I ended up buying these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0030KSCCA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for extra padding.
2). The biggest issue I have with these boots are the tread. If you are walking on any remotely smooth surface and it is wet you had better step carefully. It's even worse in the snow, they are like ice skates.
So far they have worn well and didn't take very long to break in.
