Product Description

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.

    I can't seem to be able to get Grafters brand monkey boots. So I purchased the Dr.Marten version of these classic skinhead boots. I love the color and style of these boots. The fit is kind of weird. I normally wear a U.K. 10 but these are a little loose. And bother my feet when I walk in them after a while. I am still going to show these love and maybe with a little more wear they will develop the comfort that my other Martens give me. Plus with a pair of black sta-prest they are absolute killers.

    Bought without trying on or seeing boot in person, so was a little concerned how it would fit/feel. Fit really well and the boot is comfortable. But as I walk, the boot creases right above the knuckles of my toe and can be uncomfortable. It's better now (after a couple weeks of daily wear) but is still occasionally uncomfortable at that spot (thicker socks help). I'm hopeful that goes away completely as the boot softens with wear. It's not a major concern, as I'd consider buying another pair again (perhaps to get a different color).

    Love these boots, they're better than the original ones I had back in the 70's because of the bouncing soles just like my old bovver boots.!

    Love the shoe and it's style. Too bad most shoe companies don't make a wide width for this style shoe.
