Doc Marten Boots In Style Anymore? - Page 14

post #196 of 273
@Kark & Go: Kark, you think that's bad? I remember students in Edmonton running around in Docs with shorts when it was not quite spring, yet not quite winter either (apart from the great skiing, etc., those Edmonton winters are brutal, making Ottawa seem like Florida by comparison: those westerners are tough, but nuts!!) NYC winters? Well, he'll want full grain, oily waxy leather which he can mink oil, such as Docs or Blunds, ... and yes, definitely needs to pay attention to his toes. On a cold day, he'll definitely want proper socks or a thermal insert and why I, then Kark and now you, Go, mention it. Just thinking, as yes I remember the cold toes from back in the day, too: guess we've all been there and done that which in a way is kinda funny (nope. nothing "cool" about cold toes, that's for sure). @Eightdouble: really nice deal there, I think. For Chicago winter? Oh, the winter wind doth blow there, too ... for the city streets on non snow days, I take it (I trust you noted comments about the toes, right?). Again, nice deal you got yourself there: wear them in good health! @Coolthekid: just had a look at the Doc site, the 1460s are good-year welted (meaning, in theory you can replace the soles), but why would you want to? They are the way they are on purpose and are balanced/wear, accordingly. Plus, they seem to come with a "for life" guarantee (very cool!) which you will likely void if you make any changes to the boots. Instead of changing the soles on your 1460s, put the money towards another pair of boots having a leather sole, and this way you'll have different boots, for different purposes.

yeah, i wanted shoes for those winter days where the snow had melted (or been salted) and the sidewalks were still wet, possibly a little slushed. i plan on obenauf'ing or sno-sealing them and using them for those in between days (with warm socks). and thanks!

The Doc Marten Wonder Balsam is a great product for this, too.

Dr martens are definitely classic. ive owned gripfast, grinders, DM, and getta grip boots. the gripfast were my favorite of the lot. the grinders i had were china made and felt really cheap, the soles were much too soft and wore down surprisingly fast. Getta grips are nice as well but god damn are they heavy! they probably had the best sole of the bunch no problem on icy sidewalks or through mud. ive owned several pairs of DM boots and shoes, my favorite of which are a pair of black 3i made in england the boots i usually wear now are 3i navy deck boots i believe the brand is "altima delta" the quality of the leather is better than any of the afore mentioned brands. they also have goodyear soles which are amazing theres more traction than you know what to do with.

Opinions on these? About $100 more than "regular" ones.

Again, check out Solovair.

All the Britiish made docs are expensive, primarily because of the amount they spend on marketing. Solovair give you a Brit boots for the price f a Chinese one, circa £74 - made in the old Doc Martens Northampton factory, available here.

How's the quality of these? Is it the same as MIE "vintage line" DMs?

Bumpity bump. I like reading the posts in this thread...

I bought the RSxDM's mentioned here...they are rather tight at the moment, hoping they'll be comfortable in time.

I'm a standard 11 in most UK boots but find an 11 a tad narrow and a 12 a tad big, sadly they don't seem to do 11.5's. Bear in mind I've got slightly wide feet...
