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.

They're really comfortable and feel very well made. The ribbon laces make them look a little dressier. They also came with regular laces. I'm usually a 10.5-11 and I ordered a 10, and they fit perfectly. I have high arches and always have a hard time finding comfortable shoes, and I can already tell these are going to be great for me.
Hate: the price.
Love: the way they looked and that there were multiple lace options!
Hate: the blisters. I used neatsfoot oil, shoved in whatever I could find to stretch them out overnight - nothing was working.
Love: that I could stomp all over Arizona and not worry so much about snakes, cacti and thorns.
Hate: the blisters. Seriously, WHEN WILL THE TORTURE END?
Then one day I crashed my motorcycle. My Docs now have roadrash up the sides and over the toecaps. The road chewed through the laces. Friction melted some of the rubber on the soles. My foot and ankle: totally protected - no burns, no broken skin. Absolutely no holes in the leather of my Docs. Some of the stitching got chewed through, but a lot of the shoe is triple stitched, so I can afford to lose a row - these boots won't just fall apart. I've since replaced my laces with paracord.
I continue to subject them to daily riding. They're FINALLY broken in, but even if they weren't and still gave me blisters, they're my riding boots from now on! They stood up to 450lbs of hot metal - they deserve a permanent spot in my closet.
I was going to give these boots one star but have decided to give them two stars instead because they are pretty stylish. They're just not true black or wearable. Because of their rather extravagant price, I've returned them.
Under certain light and certain backgrounds my black boots do show a tint of green, but most of the time they look as I expect (black). If it bothers you, you can probably fix that with some polish. These feel sturdy and well made, they are expensive but will probably last forever with good care. These are the most perfect boots I've owned ( and I've owned many pairs!).
The 7 fits great right out of the box, and they felt even better after I laced them up and wore them around the house. Now the 8 fit okay, but my foot was really moving around in there. I think if I was adding a pad or a wearing really thick or double socks, they would be fine. I'm not. I just wear one pair of regular Hanes socks.
They came with ribbon and regular laces. Now I have thick calves, but they laced right up with now problems.
Color - These are BLACK. They are not green. I got the "Black" color. There is no green in them at all. I've looked at them under several lights, and they are black.
Really happy with the purchase, and now my sister is too as she's getting the bigger pair.
