Doc Martens

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Before anybody makes fun of me, the point of this thread was just to show a quality boot, that i've had since 1999, I havent resoled these, just polished a bit, they've been through snow, rain and many metal concerts and still serve me well, guess its boot for life...

You might get more traction on the streetwear side of the street but you won't get much argument from me. Here in MC they always advocate longings with jeans but I prefer either my 8 year old Frye harness boots or three holer doc Marten shoes (black or oxblood).

well im not a fan of the non boots, but i do appreciate them because these shoes can take a beating and still be good to go

They do last forever. I've had my oxblood 3 hole Docs since 1993, and somehow the soles still hold up.

Are these the made in England boots? I ask because I had a pair a while ago (not English made) and the leather started cracking within a few months.

Since they moved offshore a few years ago in my experience the leather quality has diminished. You can still get Made in England docs but you have to stump up the extra dosh.

when i was in Jr High they were all the rage in my town. I have a couple pair that have held up great. My dad wears them to mow the lawn or do yardwork in. he has a pair of the aztec crezyhorse leather boots that hes had since i was in probably 3 or 4th grade. (im 28 for reference) and they still look great.

Not my cup of tea now, but those sonsofbitches wont die.

This past year I finally sent my 'peanut' 8-eyelets that I'd owned since 1987 or so to Goodwill. They'd held up incredibly well, although they were ready for a resole.

Haven't seen those forever.

I used to have a pair and all I remember was they were suicide to wear in icy or packed snow!

You could literally take a run at it and slide half the length of a city block.

I'm wearing my brown english made boots right now. About 10 yr old. They look quite good, although the leather is all wrinkled, since I didn't take much care before.

yep.

I still wear my black 8 holes from time to time.
I had a great pair of blood 8 holes Made in England that I wore almost everyday from 1990-1998.
Man, I miss those boots.

Just sold my black 10 hole made in England ones...think I'm gonna hold onto the red ones though. When I was in HS I had about 5 pair. Had a black steel toe oxford that I took a black sharpee to to get the scuff out of the toe...lol, a 8H purple boot, a 8Hbrown boot, a navy blue oxford shoe, and a 10 hole Cherry Red boot that I actually picked up on Oxford St in London. They still would fit now if I ever find them (somewhere in my parents attic and me and my pops are doing a cleanout this summer).
