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.

The leather itself is nice and soft and did not really need any breaking in, i just put the wonder balsam and was good to go.
Will definitely be looking at Dr. Martens again for boots in the future.
4/24/2014 Figure i would give an update as to how these boots are holding up.
So far i have worn them everyday through the winter here in Wisconsin, through slush, all the salt, and snow. the boots have continued to stay water proof and comfortable, i clean them once or twice a week then once a month treat them with the wonder balsam.
Recently i have worn them hiking for about 3 hours around the trails at devil's lake state park 2 days in a row, and i did not experience any cramping on my feet or discomfort.I like to go bouldering off the trails.
While i can see where some of the people are coming from on the negative reviews, these boots have passed the test for me as far as comfort and durability goes. I expect them to last quite a while yet with all the use i put them through and would recommend them.
