We visited Dr. Martens' only UK factory on Cobbs Lane in Wollaston, Northamptonshire. This is where Dr. Martens makes its iconic "Made in England" collection. The factory employs 50 workers that make about 100,000 pairs of boots per year, which is only one percent of what the brand makes as a whole!

I have an 8 hole boots that's not made in UK. It's been over 10 years since I bought them. It feels like its going to last forever even though I never take care of it. Purists may only accept Made in England models, but I'm totally fine with Made in China.
I love my 1460s, but please tell me why all of my pairs with the exception of a handmedown pair of my mom’s from the 90s all say Made In China/Thailand? Bought directly from the online store as well :\
Haha the boot of the skinhead. Did you all not know that as soon as these first came out they were adopted by racist skinheads and the company has even promoted their connection to skinheads in the past. These younger generations are just shitheads, close enough to skinheads so they might as well wear these. You would think with the loads of information and technology that we have now days, young people would be more educated but they are not.
In my perpetual search for a decent boot I'll have to look into these. Used to wear "red wings" until they became expensive but didn't wear well. I don't mind the expensive part as long as they are durable and comfortable. Red Wing gave up the comfort and durability part. But kept the expensive aspect. I'll have to find where to get these.
I have ones made in Vietnam so not as great quality (or as expensive) as the England ones but still lasted 6-7 years before the sole started giving a bit in the front. I still love them though so I got them touched up.

For those that are looking for good WORK Boots these are not them ! Irish sitters the elk hunter with steel toe ! Roomy and comfortable steel toe doesn't rub and fairly light ! Irish sitter's $129 and have already out lasted both pair of the JUNK.MARTAINS ! ALL meant Dr.Martains !
I have had two pair ! The first pair lasted 21 days ! They did exchange for the second pair ! But 40 days later the samething happen to those ! The right heel insole blow out tearing away from the upper ! Worst $180 dollars ever spent ! I'm a heavey equipment operator so not like I do a whole bunch of walking ! Junk in my book ! Anyone know who to contact to get a refund ?
These are pretty well made boots, but they lead people to believe that the methods they are using are superior to others, which they are not. Using a leather welt is far more durable than using a rubber one. Also, only the 'for life' Docs are made in England, the rest are main in Asia with lesser quality control and lower quality materials.
Will you hire me as a stylist, I will suggest your client about what would look best on them or in what they would look best, I need you to pay my Stirling fees for this year and few pair of shoes every year
Have one black pair for at least 7 years already, they r just so comfortable and durable, I have never had shoes lasting so long and particularly they are just still popular, worth the money definitely!!!!
--- FACTS --- In 2003, the Dr. Martens company came close to bankruptcy. On 1 April that year, under pressure from declining sales, the company ceased making shoes in the United Kingdom, and moved all production to China and Thailand. Five factories and two shops were closed in the UK as a result of this decision, and more than 1,000 of the firm's employees lost their jobsIn 2018 Business Insider reported that 10 million pairs of Dr. Martens shoes are produced annually. Of these, only 1% are made in the UK
My mom had a pair of classic 8 hole hard leather boots for 9 years, then gave them to me and i wore them for another 2 years before i grew out. I got a new pair of 8 hole soft leather, and they are so comfortable,
It took 10 years for my 1st Doc boots to wear out...then I used that pair for gardening....and I immediately bought 2 new pairs of Doc boots for formal wear. I always have to have Doc Martens in my shoe collection...kinda the 'little black dress', but boots & shoes. & I am a bit snobbish, the Docs need to be made in England...
... they're not look expensive as it cost at all... only the leather is nice, otherwise the form of the boots look like a work boots to me, look cheap and the midsole with rubber also look cheap as well, can use to work outdoor, but not suit for office or luxury place.
hmm, if you keep your Docs in pristine condition, wipe clean & oil occasionally...you can definitely wear the boots with a formal dress & sexy tights. And the color of Oxblood is unique, a classy stand out in the office setting amongst the boring brown & black loafers..
My dad owned 20’s 10’s and 4’ holes,wore the creepers and his monkey boots too,now he just wears the monkey boots and 4holes on occasion,49 yr old and still reps the old school punk look and diy attitude!
