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.

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.
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.
For me, the boots were fairly comfortable, right out of the box-- if anything, they fit a little loose. I am an 8 1/2 B, ordinarily, with 14" calves; I ordered the 8, and am glad I did. Maybe a 7 would have worked, but I I would rather have room for thick socks, and not have to suffer a long "breaking-in" period. I wore them for several hours the first day with no problem, and took them on a several-hours hike the next time. On the hike, I felt a little soreness in the bottom of one foot by the very end of the day, but it was mild, and I'm used to fitflops, which kind of spoils me, I think.
After reading a bunch of reviews and articles, I decided to use mink oil for waterproofing the boots, and to skip the Wonder Balsam... thus saving about $7. I did notice that prior to waterproofing, the boots got scuffed very easily, and also absorbed any water that fell on them... I'm not too impressed with the Wonder Balsam, at this point! But if you like that powdery, antiqued look... well, from what I've read, the beeswax in the Wonderbalsam is what creates that.
The boots seem to be well-made, for the most part. Only exceptions are the little leather loops (one on each of the tongues), that the laces are supposed to go through to keep the tongue from sliding around. There were just a couple stitches holding them in place, and one of the loops stopped being a loop after the second day. Not a huge deal.Read more ›
