There's a very long thread entitled 'mod to suedehead' on the Streetwear and denim side which might be of interest to you.

I always remember them as Doc Martens, but they had a heel tag embroidered 'with air-wair bouncing sole'. I'm not sure if 'air wear' / 'air wair' was a Doc Marten trade mark or if they licensed the soles from another manufacturer. I'm pretty sure you could get other brands than Doc Martens with either an air wair sole or something very similar, like Hawkins and Astronauts. I also remember 'Majordomo' soles which were a cheap rip off.

But if you want a proper expert opinion you'll probably find it on that thread. Good luck.
