    I just read every post within this thread...
    I have about five or six pairs from about fifteen years ago when i used to buy two pairs at once so i could wear two different colored shoes at once.
    What the fuck i was thinking i have no idea...

    I was never much into monkey boots, but those look good. That's a really nice oxblood colour.

    me neither til these came out. And Solovair's oxblood is superior to Doc Marten's in color

    I like how they smoothed out the sole ridges that are normally on DM air wair soles

    i was set on either another pair of 1460s in black or the james in the exel leather... but this makes me reconsider everything. I love the depth of that oxblood, even if i still don't like monkey boots. The color is [​IMG] How's the sizing on those solovairs?

    Those solovairs look sharp. Are they all still made in England, or just the more expensive ones.

    ^^ yep Solovair's factory is in Northampton. they're probably neighbors with Edward Green, but these look so much better heh

    I don't think they've ever been *out* of fashion have they? They fall out of favour sometimes but those of us that have always worn them know how dependable they are. I'm getting a bit old to wear the boots now but the Dr Martens shoes are still the mainstay of my wardrobe.
