Dr Martens, Yay/Nay? - Page 18

post #256 of 277
I actually have Made in England boots. The leather is just really thick, so they can get a bit warm inside.

Guys, I have a similar pair of made in england Dr Martens pictured above that were bought 8-9 yrs ago. Mine is in brown suede and is pretty much unworn. Can I still get some use out of it? Any suggestion?.........I try pairing it with a rolled up oliver-colored pants and a flannel shirt which looks alright, but any better option out there?

I've been contemplating those as what my what is starting to become, annual dm purchase. Either those, or http://www.zappos.com/dr-martens-james to match my black pair.

Here is a picture of what I assume to be MIC Doc Martens. Theyre 1490s and I got them off Zappos. Just starting to break in now and I love them. I ordered TTS (12US), and Im happy with the fit. It seemed a little large at first but I think the fit is getting more glove-like now.

I just bought a pair of MIE Oxbloods, polished them with Kiwi Cordovan polish and now the leather is darker than it originally was. Is it normal for the leather to become darker after polishing, or did I use the wrong polish? Everywhere I asked said that the oxblood polish isn't made anymore and they've never carried cherry or didn't know if anyone made cherry polish. You can see in the picture that the tongue(which was not polished) is a different color than the part that was polished. Is there a way that I can restore the original color?

These are actually not bad looking.

I like DMs a lot.

You lot probably aren't interested having read your previous messages but here is a UK website I got some boots from a while back just in case you are interested. They are not leather but very good quality and made in the UK and look great (I think). They are expensive though. I have the Airseal Para Boot (Black).

I have just ordered some English made 1914's in Oxblood after much deliberation. Thanks for all your comments they helped me finally make up my fucking mind! Last time I wore DM's was at school, aged about 12 or 13! I know I had boots just can't remember if I had shoes too, they might have been cheap imitations. 

 

Made in England

stunning. liquid sandpaper? wut

Got my first pair of Doc Martens last month and I love them. Hopefully I can expand and get a collection of a few different styles.
