Dr Martens, Yay/Nay? - Page 17

post #241 of 277
Anobody knows when the new Raf for Dr Martens collection is dropping? and I was wondering if the quality of the boots is better than the normal ones..
post #242 of 277
^^ quality is same on construction (made in China). Leather is different than usual DM (but nothing that great). Price obviously higher

Thanks alot. I forgot to ask but do you know what is the smallest size produced and where we can find Docs made with nice leather (not the cheap plasticy leather they curently use)?
post #244 of 277
^^ what's your standard for "nice leather"?

The MIE docs use a nicer leather than the chinese ones, but it is still corrected grain, albeit a nicer type that takes a great shine with a proper polishing.

The James boot uses a nicer Excel leather, and a few of the chinese made ones use full grain leather.

Smallest size I think is 5UK

What are your favorite socks to wear with Doc Martens? I find that my feet tend to sweat in my docs sometimes (or at least get a bit hot). I'm not sure if it is the socks. My feet are fine in most other footwear, but Doc Martens have heavy leather.

Suggestions on types/brands/materials for socks to stay cool when indoors?

Very appropriate verb selection, as they look like a steaming pile of shit:

White (athletic) ankle socks and a pair of jeans. Always looks good with Docs in the summer.

I have this problem where my docs keep cutting my ankles. Bear it out and break them in, or place a piece of rubber inside on the ankle area?

I have the same problem with my new Indys. I just stuff a thin sock between my ankles and the boots.

Dr. Martens website recommends an aftermarket insole be used. But if your shoes are digging into your ankle, I'm not sure an insole will help. Try one of the sport shock absorbing insoles with a blue or green rubber gel footbed base. They help, and make the shoes/boots fit much better while breaking in.

i wish they made side zip boots in men's sizes that weren't YY and thus overly and unjustifiably expensive

Go Jean Paul. Who knows, maybe they're big in Europe.

I'm not sure why Dr Martens can't be content with just making the classics. They'll never go 'out' and this shit just dilutes the whole reason for why I love them in the first place.

I've had this problem too with my newer Docs. The funny thing is I don't recall it happening in the old Made in England Docs I've got. Those have begun to come apart at the upper stitches, so I need to take them to the cobbler. Does anyone know if the China ones are less breathable?
