    Dr Marten’s 1461Z Gibson leather issue.

    Please do forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask you guys for some info, I’m new here. Of course it’s obvious that Doc Marten’s leather quality has gotten dramatically worse in recent years, but this may be the most insubstantial pair I’ve owned. I have worn them 3-4 times and the...

    The sole on my Doc Martens boot is splitting. Can this be fixed?

    The sole on my boot is separating from the upper, as you can see here: I think this is where the sole was supposed to be heat-sealed together with the upper so I am guessing this is a manufacturing defect. You can watch the process in this video: This is a new pair from the For Life...

    Hawkins boots - much like Doc Martens

    I found a pair of Hawkins boots at a thrift store (good shape, $3.50) that look exactly like the Doc Martens of the same style (the 8 holes) but the leather looks a little better and they have a half-insole. They are made in Northampton, where Docs were made before they moved production to...
